St Elisabeth's CE Primary School

Local Governing Board

The Local Governing Board (LGB) of St. Elisabeth's has clearly defined responsibilities and is accountable to the Trust Board of the St. James and Emmanuel Academy Trust. The role of LGB's within the Trust is outlined in the 'Scheme of Delegation' which can be found on this page. 

St Elisabeth's CE Primary School is a church school with very strong links to the Parish of St Elisabeth's in Reddish. To ensure that the faith foundations of our school are upheld, the Parochial Church Council (PCC) of the church nominates potential LGB candidates to the Trust Board for approval.

This school has one parent governors who is elected by parents with children at the school. 

Co-opted governors are selected by the Academy Trust to support and challenge school improvement and ensure that school improvement priorities are having the desired impact on our children's education. Members of the Trust Executive Team may also attend meetings to ensure clear lines of communication between the LGB and Board of Trustees. 

All our Governors have enhanced DBS checks.
