Local Advisory Board (LAB)

Welcome to the Local Advisory Board (LAB) section of our website. The LAB’s role is to act as a “critical friend” to the school and the Senior Leadership Team, offering help, support and advice as and when required. The Local Advisors have responsibility for raising school standards through their three key roles:

  • Setting strategic direction
  • Ensuring accountability
  • Monitoring and evaluating school performance

We have two types of advisors:

  • Parent Advisors: Parents of children at the school.
  • Community Advisors: Members of the local community.
