The CEO or their representative will advise and support the Ethos and Advisory Committee as necessary.
There will be a minimum of two parent governors on a Hub committee. A maximum of one parent from each school will be appointed as a Parent Governor. If there is only one school in the Hub, two will be appointed. Where there is more than one expression of interest it will be necessary to hold an election per school.
Local Foundation Governors serve in church school and mixed school Hubs which are part of the School Trust. These members of the committee are appointed with the approval of Exeter Diocesan Education Network (EDEN). The role is to undertake those responsibilities outlined in the Scheme of Delegation agreed by the School Trust. It is the responsibility for the Foundation committee members to understand the Scheme of Delegation. The committee member will support and challenge items relating specifically to the Christian ethos and distinctiveness of the schools.
The role of the Ethos and Advisory Committee (EAC) is to support, inform, advise and challenge provision; working together, empowering excellence and improving outcomes for all children. Working with the Head Teacher, Executive Team and Trust Board, the EAC is a local voice and a link with local communities and churches (church schools) as well as being advocates for all schools within our School Trust.
As ambassadors for the schools, the EAC can play a crucial role in enriching community relationships and communication; contributing to the collective effectiveness of schools and the Board of Trustees.
The main role of the EAC is to be able to express and act on local views and issues – views of parents and the community, etc. One of the key purposes of the EAC is to ensure that the schools are being a good expression of what and who the School Trust is in the local community. Therefore, these roles are about ensuring that the School Trust ethos is “lived” out in the schools on a day-to-day basis.
The roles translate specifically into the following tasks that the EAC undertakes
