Governance

The Ark Schools board is the legal governing body for all Ark schools. The board delegates responsibility to a Local Governing Body (LGB) which is responsible for monitoring progress at an individual Ark school. LGBs meet six times a year and have the following composition:

  • Headteacher/ principal
  • Local authority nominee
  • Elected parent
  • Elected member of teaching staff
  • Elected member of support staff

Up to five Ark nominees (from which a chair is chosen).

The LGB for Ark Somerville Primary Academy will be established in due course ahead of the school opening.
