Governors / Local Advisory Board
Welcome to the Morningside Governors/Local Advisory Board page, this page will tell you who the local advisory board are, their roles and how they play an active part in ensuring the success of the school.
Who we are
The Primary Advantage Federation has a central governing board with representatives from all eight schools. Each school has a local advisory board that meets at least four times a year and supports the Headteacher and Executive Principal in making strategic decisions that will improve outcomes for pupils. Each local advisory board reports to the central governing body once a term. At Morningside, it is made up of a collection of people which includes the schools head teacher, elected members of school staff, elected parents and selected representatives from the local community. The Chair of Central Governing Board (Foundation) is Louis Coiffait.

What do we do at Morningside?
We have some big responsibilities; making important decisions for the school. This involves things like looking at how the school spends its annual budget, ensuring the school meets the requirements of the national curriculum, setting targets and monitoring achievements. We are also involved in things like staffing decisions and ensuring that the school premises are well maintained. As well as these, overall, we aim to do whatever we can to be supportive of the school, its staff and all of the pupils.
