How we are Governed

Consett Academy (CA) is part of New College Durham Academies Trust (NCDAT). The Trust is governed by a Board of Directors/Members who are responsible for the administration of the Trust and for the academic performance of the schools within the Trust.

The Local Governing Body (LGB) of CA operates as a committee of the Trust Board. The LGB meets twice each term to consider key aspects of the Academy and challenge the Principal and senior leadership team. The Principal’s Report, Finance, Human Resources, Business, ICT and Health and Safety are standing items on the agenda.

Membership of the LGB comprises up to six Lead Sponsor governors, one co-sponsor governor, two parent governors and two staff governors.

Governors are actively involved in the school and visit regularly. Each governor is linked to a specific aspect of the Academy’s work. We facilitate governor training so that governors are up to date with the constant changes in education.
