The Board of Governors of Leigh Academies Trust has a range of powers and responsibilities which it is legally required to carry out, working in a close and balanced partnership with the Chief Executive and Principals, to ensure that the Academy provides the best possible education for all its students.
Detailed work is carried out in two Committees: Academic Standards and Resources which report to the full Trust Board.
Langley Park Primary Academy has its own Development Board which focuses on just this academy. Information is then shared from the Development Board into the Maidstone Academy Board which is shared with Tree Tops Primary Academy, Molehill Primary Academy and Oaks Primary Academy. The Academy Board is responsible for the day-to-day management and governance of the academies under its jurisdiction. The majority of the leadership and management is delegated to the Principals of each academy. The chairperson of the academy board is represented on the Trust Board to ensure that there is effective and coherent governance.
