Local governing body

Anthem delegates certain responsibilities to a local governing body (LGB) through an agreed scheme of delegation.

The purpose of the LGB is to support Anthem in implementing its core purpose of advancing education for the public benefit and to be a link to the school community whilst providing challenge and support at a local level.

The LGB’s delegated responsibilities are sub-divided into three core functions:

  • strategic improvement
  • support and challenge
  • communication and collaboration

The Local Governors comprise a Local Governing Body (LGB), which meets once every half term.  It also has ad hoc working groups to move ahead with some business areas and report back to the full LGB.
