As per our Nexus MAT Articles of Association and Nexus Scheme of Delegation, each school within Nexus Multi Academy Trust has its own Local Governing Body (LGB), which must have a minimum of 2 parent governors in its membership.

Local Governing Bodies have powers and responsibility delegated to them by the Trust Board of Directors and from the Chief Executive Officer, so that those people closest to a school have the prerogative to governor effectively.

We strongly believe that excellent schools have excellent leadership and management from within, and a key component of this is governance. The Trust has a duty to ensure that it enables excellent leadership in each of our schools through empowerment and support.

The Nexus Governance Handbook includes the terms of reference for Local Governing Bodies and outlines the code of conduct for governors.
