Governors

Our school is proud to be part of the Crofty Multi Academy Trust, the running of which is overseen by the board of trustees – chaired by Mr Mike Hosking.

The Trust Board is made up of volunteers, mainly people who have been school governors in the past but also including people with specific business or educational skills. They set the strategic direction for the Trust, hold the Trust to account for its outcomes for students and oversee the work of the Executive Officers.

Each school has a Local Governing Body (LGB) who have delegated responsibility for standards and outcomes in that school, its safeguarding and its relationships with external stakeholders, especially parents. The Chairs of LGBs are held to account by the Board for outcomes in those areas.

The LGB will use its detailed knowledge and engagement with stakeholders to ensure that their school is being well served by the executive leadership, and has direct access to the board if there are concerns.

The Local Governing Body of Roskear Primary and Nursery School are all volunteers who give up their time to represent the community and to help shape the direction and aims of the School. Please click on their names below to find out more details about their term of office and responsibilities. For further information regarding the structure of the Crofty Multi Academy Trust, including details of trustees and members please use the Crofty MAT tab.

Local governing body (LGB) responsibilities include monitoring:
 
• whether the school is working within the agreed policies,
• whether standards are being met,
• if the money is being well spent.
