BMAT Logoclose

Outstanding Education

Supporting primary and secondary schools across Essex and North & East London, BMAT is a growing multi-academy trust with a singular vision: schools, teachers and pupils freed to succeed.

Local Governing Board

Hello, my name is John Blaney and as Chair of the Local Governing Board (LGB) I would like to welcome you to the LGB section of the website. You will be able to find important information about the role that the LGB play in the operation of the school. Forest Hall School is one of several schools who are part of a Multi Academy Trust called BMAT. BMAT was created to establish a network of schools in the Essex that provide excellent academic tuition and outstanding vocational experiences for young people.

BMAT holds ultimate responsibility for all statutory obligations, accountability and decisions regarding the running of each individual academy/School in the Trust.  However, BMAT delegates some of the operational decisions to Local Governing Board (LGB) to enable a more localised and focused control, though it retains legal responsibility for standards across all academies in the multi academy trust. It gives due regard to any recommendations and guidance received from the LGBs and recognises their valuable contribution.  

Although the LGBs are constituted in an advisory capacity to the BMAT Board of Directors, they play a vital and fundamental role of raising attainment and achievement in each academy/school through:

  • Achievement of Pupils
  • Behaviour & Safety
  • Leadership & Management
  • Quality of Teaching

To see what other areas FHS LGB has responsibility for in terms of review and oversight click here

The FHS LGB is made up of two staff members, volunteer parents/carers and members of the local community. Staff members and volunteer parents/carers are appointed by election by staff or parents/carers. Members of the local community are appointed by the board.

If you would like to contact a member of the FHS LGB please click here and choose LGB on the drop down menu.
