Local Committee

Governance of Waverley Abbey CofE Junior School

Waverley Abbey is an academy in The Good Shepherd Trust, a family of church and community school academies within the Diocese of Guildford. 

The Trust has established Local Committees for each of their academies. The Trust has delegated a number of activities to local committees. Further details can be found within the Scheme of Delegation. Each local committee is responsible for:

  • Establishing the strategic direction
  • Ensuring accountability
  • Overseeing compliance
  • Ensuring risks to the organisation are managed

The local committee meets six times per year (more if required but at least once per half term) and all local committee members are expected to attend. The term of office for all local committee members is 4 years, unless otherwise stated. This excludes the Headteacher.
