Academy Governors

We are looking for parents/carers to join our Local Governing Body. Your input on issues such as finance, site management and curriculum development will help to influence and improve academy performance.  Governors support the academy in a variety of ways in addition to attending Local Governing Body meetings. It is a very important and worthwhile role! You do not need special skills or experience, but you should be interested and willing to become involved.

The Local Governing Body meet 6 times per year. There are also panels for personnel, Finance and Behaviour and Safety held on a regular basis.

There is a Governors Improvement Committee that meet at least half termly to review the educational standards and effictiveness at the academy. They are also responsible for monitoring the Academy Improvement Plan. 

They are chaired by a member of the LGB.
