Governors

Follow the 3 core functions set out in the Governance Handbook 2020:

  1. To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Hold the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its children;
  3. Oversee the financial performance of the Academy and making sure its money is well spent.

Together, the Governors are responsible for:

  • Setting aims and targets for the Academy and checking the Academy’s progress towards attaining these.
  • Monitoring how well the Academy’s policies and plans are working.
  • Accounting for the performance of the Academy and the Local Governing Body (LGB).
  • Working with the Head teacher to make sure that teaching at the Academy is effective and good quality and the children are making the best possible progress.
  • Taking general responsibility for the Academy and its budget.
  • Challenging and supporting the senior management team and taking opportunities to show interest in and appreciation of staff and children.
  • Promoting the interests of the Academy and its children in the wider community.

The LGB comprises of:

The Head Teacher

3 Parent governors - elected from parents at the Academy

5 Co-opted governors - Invited by the LGB for their skill set from the local community
