Local Advisory Board

The Local Advisory Board is the school’s local governance body.

Our school is part of a family of 11 schools, supported by the Bellevue Place Education Trust (BPET). BPET are responsible for our core educational vision, for setting rigorous academic standards, and for supervising the quality of teaching and the school’s progress.

To assist BPET in these tasks, each school has a sub-committee of local advisors called Local Advisory Board, or LAB, appointed by the BPET Board of Trustees.

The LAB’ s main focus is educational strategy, school outcomes and high educational aspirations that meet the needs of our local community. They are responsible for:

  1. Setting the vision, ethos and strategic direction for our school, within the BPET overall vision
  2. Holding the headteacher and senior leadership team to account for the educational performance of our school, the pupils and the performance and management of staff
  3. Ensuring investment in educational improvement is value for money and having a real impact.

These functions have been formally delegated to the LAB by the BPET Board of Trustees, which is the maintaining authority for our school. The formal delegation for Kilburn Grange school is set out in the BPET Scheme of Delegation.

Structure of the LAB

The chair of the LAB is formally appointed by the BPET Board of Trustees, serving at the discretion of the BPET Board. Together with the Headteacher, the chair can appoint local advisers according to the skillset needed in the group.

The local advisers are provided with the ‘Local Advisory Board Handbook’ that sets out the terms of reference and structure of the group, along with a code of conduct.
