Academy Council

The Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust (DBAT) is overseen by a Board of Trustees who are responsible for the management and administration of DBAT and schools run by DBAT. DBAT is accountable to external government agencies including the Department for Education, the Education Funding Agency and the Charity Commission, for the quality of the education provided by the schools and its management of public funds and it is required to have systems in place through which it can assure itself of quality, safety and good practice.

In order to assist in the discharge of these responsibilities the Board of Directors of DBAT appoints Local Academy Council members for particular schools. The Local Academy Council for Lydiard Millicent CE Primary has been established to ensure the good governance of the school and to ensure that the business of the Academy is conducted in accordance with their purpose and ethos. The people appointed to the Local Academy Council have connections to the school and/or communities and churches they serve.

The Local Academy Council of Lydiard Millicent CE Primary meet six times a year. It monitors progress, ratifies policies, plans future work and discusses issues relevant to the schools. Much work is carried out by sub-committees who give feedback at these meetings on the work they have carried out.
