Local  Committee


The Local Committee is established by The MILL Academy Trust Board and  has three key functions in their relationship with the school: Support, Challenge and Champion. The functions, duties and proceedings of the Local Committee is set out in The MILL Academy Trust’s Scheme of Delegation and Terms of Reference. Each Local Committee volunteer plays an essential part in making sure that the committee as a whole works effectively. All Local Committee volunteers abide by a code of conduct which includes the seven principles of public life.


Henry Box attended Oriel College, Oxford and was a Master of the Worshipful Company of Grocers in London.  The relationship between the school and these two institutions has continued over the centuries. Both organisations nominate individuals to be appointed to the Local  Committee.


The Local  Committee has three link Local Committee volunteers for Safeguarding, Special Educational Needs and Disability and Grants such as  Pupil Premium and Catch up Fund. The Local Committee meets three times a year.
