The Local Advisory Board (LAB) has a large number of legal responsibilities, including: to support The Wensum Trust’s vision, to implement actions required to comply with statutory regulations and the Funding Agreement, to oversee the academy’s activities and to hold the academy's leadership to account for academic performance, quality of care and quality of provision.
The Principals are responsible for the day-to-day running of the academy and of ensuring that the policies and strategy agreed by The Wensum Trust are implemented.

Governors’ Attendance and Business Interests
To ensure that there are no conflicts of interest, we will maintain a register of Governors’ business interests, published below.
We will also maintain and publish a record of our Governors' Attendance at meetings.
A copy of governors' minutes are available for inspection by contacting the school.
Becoming a Governor at Hellesdon High School
All types of people can become a governor. No special qualifications are required, but you must be 18 or over on the date when you are elected or appointed. Enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education are the most important qualities. You do not need to have a child at the School to become a Governor.
We particularly welcome new Governors who have transferable skills developed at work, or who have a particularly good understanding of the community served by the School.
