Governing Body Structure

There is no prescription for membership of the Local Governing Body except Parent Governors. The Salterns Academy Trust Board has agreed the following membership for the ALNS Local Governing Body (Articles 100, 101 and 53), which is reviewed and confirmed every twelve months by the Trust Board:


Type of Appointee
  • Headteacher
  • 3 x Director Appointed
  • 3 x Co-opted
  • 3 x Parent Elected
  • 1 x Employee Elected


Employees are therefore 2 of 14 and not greater than 33.33% criteria (Salterns Academy Trust Articles, Governor’s Handbook/Best Practice).

Associate (non-voting) members will be Deputy Headteachers and Assistant Headteachers for the School.
