About the Governors

Governors

Governors are volunteers who commit to working alongside the senior leadership team of the college to offer support and challenge. They come with skills and experiences which complement those of the staff in college and bring additional perspectives. They have a strategic, big picture role.
Judgemeadow Community College has academy status, and is a member of Lionheart Academies Trust. Governors form a Local Governing Body within the Trust organisation, with some delegated responsibilities to complement the top-level responsibilities held by the Lionheart Trust Executive Board. Contact the governing body via the Chair of Governors, Chris Swan, on chairofgovernors@lionhearttrust.org.uk 

Scheme of Delegation

The Trust Board delegates responsibility within Lionheart schools and colleges through the Scheme of Delegation.
