Local Governing Bodies

Each academy within the Worcester Diocese Academy Trust (DoWMAT) retains its own Local Governing Body.

DoWMAT remains committed to the principle of local governance by local people; recognising and valuing the effort taken by members of the Local Governing Bodies who support our academies in delivering strategic management and operational oversight.


In particular, our Local Governing Bodies have an important role to play in promoting high standards and upholding the Christian distinctiveness of their academy. Our academy LGBs must ensure that the students are attending a successful academy which provides them with a good education and supports their holistic well-being.

There is a scheme of delegation outlining the responsibilities of the LGB.
