As an academy, the Local Governing Body of Becton School has delegated powers from the Nexus Multi Academy Trust Board of Directors, which are outlined in the Trust’s Scheme of Delegation 

The Chief Executive Officer and Officers of the Trust act as advisors to the Local Governing Body and attend most meetings


Becton School Local Governing Body was constituted on 1st April 2020 and the following structure of Governance is now in place:

The total membership shall be not less than 7 and not more than 12.

The membership shall comprise:

  • the Chair who is elected by the Trust Board of Directors;
  • the Headteacher;
  • no fewer than 2 elected Parent Governors;
  • two elected Members of Staff, one Teaching, one Non-Teaching;
  • the remaining Governors are appointed by the Local Governing Body. Governors can be Parents or Members of Staff but the number of Staff Governors (inc Headteacher) must not exceed one-third of the total number of Governors.

How are Governors chosen?

There are different categories of Governors: Parent Governors, Staff Governors and Governors.

Parent Governors are elected by current parents when a vacancy becomes available. Staff Governors, are representatives of the teaching or support staff and are elected by the eligible staff when a vacancy becomes available. All Governors are appointed by the Local Governing Body. They are selected to provide skills and experience which Governors feel are required.

The Chair of the Local Governing Body is appointed by the Nexus Multi Academy Trust Board of Directors.

All Governors initially serve for a period of four years. At the end of the four years, they can stand for re-election or be re-appointed. Governors are free to resign before the end of their four-year term if they so wish.
