Each of the Schools within Forward As One CE Multi Academy Trust has its own Local Governing Advisory Board (LAB). Each LAB has a set constitution, governing the types of members and the numbers of members in each category.

Each Local Governing Advisory Board operates under delegated powers, assigned to them by the Trust Board and has its own Chairperson, elected by peers from the Local Advisory Board.

The Local Advisory Board at St. John’s CE Primary hold our leaders to account for performance, progress, and attainment. At a local level, we aim to have representation from staff, parents, church, and the wider community.
