Local Advisory Body
The Viking Academy Trust has a group of 15 individuals who work together to discuss strategic issues including legal issues, human resources, finance, curriculum, health & safety, budgets and the development plans of each school. Each school has its own Local Advisory Body (LAB) made up of 6 or more individuals.
