Portway governors and LLT trustees

Our school is part of the Leading Learning Trust.  The trust is a charitable company, limited by guarantee.

The trust has three members, and is governed by a group of eight trustees.  A summary of the skills and experience that our members and trustees bring to their roles is provided in the document to download on this page.  The document also contains photographs of the trustees and members, in oder to ensure that members of our school community and other interested stakeholders can easily identify those tasked with governance of the trust. 

Details of how our trust is governed, as well as the scheme of delegation (that describes how the trust, the Local Governing Body and the Executive Head teacher work together to consult, review, approve, recommend, and action the work of the trust and of Portway Primary School) are all provided on the trust documentation page of the Leading Learning Trust website.  The trust also has two committees: the FARM (Finance, Audit and Risk Management Committee) and the Pay Review Committee (further detail is again available on the trust documentation page).

As part of the Leading Learning Trust, Portway has a LGB (Local Governing Body).  The way in which this body is involved in the decision making regarding both trust-wide and school matters is detailed in the scheme of delegation referred to above.  A summary of the skills and experience that our local governors bring to their roles is available as a document to download on this page.  A register of business and financial interests is also published as a document to download.  The Portway LGB does not have any designated committees.  However, the Chair may ask groups of people to convene to assist with specific issues from time to time.

The LBG is supported in its duties by npw (Newham Partnership Working, Governor Services), and our clerk is Julie Ammi, who can be contacted via npw on 020 824 96937.
