Local Advisory Board
North Beckton Primary School has an active Local Advisory Board (LAB). We act as a critical support to the school, providing strategic governance to ensure that all children receive the best possible education. The LAB meet regularly and follows the scheme of delegation agreed by the Trust Board annually.
What do we do?
The LAB has an important part to play in raising school standards through its three key roles:
- monitoring and evaluation the schools safeguarding arrangements
- ensuring accountability
- monitoring and evaluating school performance
We have responsibility, together with the leadership team, for agreeing the policies for the general running of the school. Our role is crucial:
- We fulfil statutory duties to ensure that the school is a safe, healthy and an inclusive environment
- We ensure the school finances are in order by monitoring the school's budget on a regular basis
- We provide support and challenge to the leadership team of the school on all issues that affect the learning and welfare of our pupils
The LAB is drawn from the staff of the school, the Local Education Authority, parents and the wider community that the school serves.
The Trust will make available for public inspection copies of agendas, minutes and reports for our meetings including the Trust Board and any of the LAB committees. Please contact the Trust’s Company Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
