Unity Primary Academy

“Giving every child every chance, every day.”


The LGB monitors the Academy's key performance indicators and acts as a critical friend to the Headteacher and the Academy's senior leadership team, providing challenge where appropriate. The LGB of Unity Primary Academy carries out its functions in relation to the Academy on behalf of the Trust Board and in accordance with policies determined by the Trust Board, the scheme of delegation that we use as a Trust can be found below


The LGB of Unity Primary Academy is made up of:


4 x Trust Appointed Governors

2 x Staff Governors

2 x Parent Governors

1 x Co-opted Local Governors


The LGB also works alongside a cluster board where cluster issues are discussed. The Cluster Board is made up of volunteers, just like an LGB, with Headteacher representation and the Chairs of LGBs.
