Governing Body

The governing body has been reconstituted at a smaller size in line with the new Government guidance to ensure it has the range of skills it needs and can be cohesive and dynamic.  It is a combination of former governors and new governors selected for their skills, knowledge and experience.  It includes governors representative of the parents and staff.

The governing body are charged with driving up academy and student performance and ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education.  Its prime purpose in law is therefore to conduct the academy with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the academy.

Its core functions are defined as:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the academy and its students, and the performance management of staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the academy and making sure its money is well spent

The governing body normally meets 6 times a year.
