Governing Body Structure

Kingsbury Green Academy (formerly The John Bentley School) joined Ascend Learning Trust (formerly Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Trust) on 1st April 2019. The academy has a Local Governing Body which meets six times a year. There are no sub-committees.

The Local Governing Body is a committee which meets to monitor, evaluate and review the Academy Improvement Plan, ensuring clear links from the self-evaluation process.

The responsibilities of the Local Governing Body are as follows:

  • Trust governance
  • Statutory and regulatory compliance
  • Student outcomes
  • Community engagement
  • School development

Governing Body Structure

The Local Governing Body comprises up to twelve members including:

  • the Head teacher of the Academy;
  • at least two elected parents or guardians of a pupil at the Academy (Parent Local Governors)
  • Up to two employees of the Academy comprising one teacher member and one member of the non-teaching staff, both to be elected by employees of the Academy (Staff Local Governors); and
  • Such other members as the Trustees decide.

Each LGB shall have a Chair and a Vice-Chair.

The length of service of all Local Governors and the Clerk to the LGB shall be four years. Subject to remaining eligible to be a Local Governor, any Local Governor may be reappointed or re-elected at the end of his or her term.

Ascend Learning Trust

Ascend Learning Trust has strategic responsibilities which include achieving high level educational performance in all of its Academies, owning all assets, employing all staff, and receiving all funding from the Education Funding Agency to allocate budgets to each Academy in Ascend Learning Trust, whilst providing effective and efficient corporate services which offer value for money.

Ascend Learning Trust operates through a governance structure, which includes the Ascend Learning Trust Board of Trustees, supported by a Finance Committee, Standards Committee and Academy Attainment Committee identified below. Each Committee has its own Terms of Reference. Academy Local Governing Bodies feed into the governance structure.
