The Local Schools Committee for Clinton, Dolton and Clawton Schools
Known as The Tritons, Clinton, Dolton and Clawton schools are all members of Alumnis Multi Academy Trust and collectively form one Local Schools Committee. The ultimate responsibility for the school rests with the Board of Directors of the Trust (Trust details and scheme of delegation can be found here) but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Schools Committee. Some Committee Members are appointed by the Board whilst others are elected by parents or guardians of students at the School or by staff.
A Local Schools Committee is a sub-committee of the Alumnis Multi-Academy Trust Board of Directors. It is The LSC’s responsibility to offer to all children the best possible education, preparing them for on-going education and life in the community.
The LSC plays a crucial role in enriching community relationships and communication, contributing to the collective effectiveness of schools and Alumnis MAT as a whole. The aim is to support, inform, advise and challenge provision; working together, empowering excellence and improving outcomes for all children. Working with the Head Teacher, Executive Team and Trust Board, the LSC is a local voice and a link with local communities and churches (church schools) as well as being advocates for all schools within our School Trust.
The Trust Board delegates to them the following functions:
- Monitoring of the School Improvement Plan
