Welcome to our Local Academy Committee (LAC) section.
Please find below details of how our LAC is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each member.
We have also provided a Register of Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.
On 1st March 2015, Saint Anne’s became an academy; joining with Our Lady of the Angels Infant School, Saint Joseph’s Junior School, Saint Francis Primary School, Saint Benedict’s Primary School and Saint Thomas More Secondary School. Collectively we are known as The Holy Spirit Catholic Multi Academy. This means that we work together and with the Catholic Diocese of Birmingham rather than a Local Authority.
Instead of a Governing Body, we have a Local Academy Committee which then reports to the Board of Directors. The Local Academy Committee is fully committed to ensuring that the school provides an environment that will enable the children’s spiritual, academic, social and physical needs to be met and maximised within the needs of not only the National Curriculum but the desires of parents and teachers alike. We support the mission and vision of the school and aim to develop the school in a way, which ensure high quality education for now and the future.
Our role is to not only to monitor the compliance with statutory requirements of the Secretary of State for Education but that of the Diocese of Birmingham and most importantly the wants and needs of the children in the care and trust of St. Anne's.
