Statement

As a charity and company limited by guarantee, the Multi Academy Trust (the “Trust”) is governed by a Board of Directors (the “Directors”) who have overall responsibility and ultimate decision making authority for all the work of the Trust, including the establishing and running of the academies run by the Trust.

The following academies are currently run by the Trust (Kernow Learning):  Trenance Learning Academy, St. Newlyn East Learning Academy, Falmouth Primary Academy, Foxhole Learning Academy, The Bishops CEVA Learning Academy, St. Merryn Primary School, Trevisker Primary School, Constantine Primary School, Mabe Community School, Leedstown Primary School, St. Agnes Academy, St. Columb Major Academy, St. Columb Minor Academy, St. Kew Academy, Beacon Academy, Charlestown Primary School, Upton Cross Academy and Sky Academy - each one the “Academy” or collectively the “Academies”.

In order to assist with the discharge of their responsibilities, the Directors have established a Local Advisory Board (“LAB”) in each of the Academies.  The LAB shall be a committee established pursuant to Articles 100 to 104 (inclusive) of the Articles of Association of the Trust (the “Articles”).  

As part of the Trust's vision and long term strategy the Trust are creating 'Hub' Academies/LABs to interlink and share expertise, skills and knowledge of LAB members, whilst ensuring efficient and productive meetings.  

The Directors may review LAB terms of reference at any time but at least annually.

Members of a LAB play a key role in supporting the Board of Trustees to fulfil their statutory, contractual and regulatory duties. As a member of a LAB, you will share equally with the other members of the LAB the responsibility of exercising the powers and responsibilities delegated to the LAB by the Board. Details of these powers and responsibilities are set out in the Kernow Learning (formerly The Learning Academy Trust) Scheme of Delegation. 

During the Academic Year 2018/2019 St Newlyn East Learning Academy had an Interim Local Advisory Board.  The Academy are supported by both the ILAB and directly by the Board of Trustees in this interim period.
