    MAT - the Trust Board have just appointed our LGB chair due to a resignation. Struggling to get to grips with the responsibilities/powers of all interested parties. Could someone please point me in the right direction of easily understood info... Many thanks.

    @William013 can you clarify what information you are looking for? About what an LGB does specifically? Or about governance in academies more generally?

    Is it you who has been made LGB chair? How long have you been on the LGB? How much school governance experience elsewhere?

    Lots of detail in DfE Governance Handbook and Academies Financial Handbook although most people wouldn't describe either as 'easily understood'.

    National Governors Association has lots of guidance on governance in academies but you will have to become an NGA member to access it.

    The starting point for your LGB's specific functions is the schedule of delegations decided by the MAT board. There are no specific rules for what the MAT delegates to LGBs, it's for each MAT to decide for itself. LGBs are, in effect, committees of the academy trust so the trust decides their terms of reference.
