Overview of Governance in WeST
Our school is pleased to be working as part of Westcountry Schools Trust (WeST). From 1 January 2023 schools in WeST belong to one of four Hubs. Each Hub is supported by a Hub Advisory Board (HAB) which serves to provide a connection between the Trustees, schools and their communities. HABs meet three times a year to consider reports from executive leaders and matters arising from HAB members’ visits to school. After each HAB meeting the Chair and Vice-Chair of the HAB meet with CEO and Chair of Trust, ensuring a flow of local knowledge and oversight from the HAB to the trust board.
From this date, all Trust and school documents, including policies, which refer to 'Local Governing Bodies' or 'LGBs' should be read as 'Hub Advisory Boards' or 'HABs'.
Our governance model is made of several elements as shown below:
