Local Support Board

Governance - The Fermain Academy (Youth Engagement Schools Trust)

The Fermain Academy Local Support Board (LSB) (Also the YES Trust Board of Trustees until Autumn 2019), meets every school term following an agenda driven by the Board of Trustees of the YES Trust. All aspects of safeguarding, school improvement, finance, HR, H&S and strategic leadership are discussed. Minutes for the following meetings can be viewed below.

Minutes from 2019/20 meetings and beyond, can be found on the Trust website due to the conversion to a Multi Academy Trust in Oct 2019.

The Fermain Academy established a Local Support Board of local governors in the 2019-2020 year. Minutes for these meetings can be obtained on request by contacting the school office.
