Governors/Board of Directors

 

The governing body of the academy is made up of representatives of the Church, the local communities, staff representatives and elected parent governors from both schools.

Their duty is the oversight of the general conduct and development of the schools. The daily functioning of the schools is mainly the responsibility of the Headteacher and members of staff who report to the governors concerning the school curriculum, the schools' resources and activities and the general management of the schools. The governors support the staff in committee meetings and are encouraged to get to know the schools through visits during the school day.

The governors’ role is to ensure that the curriculum is broad and balanced, and meets the requirements of the National Curriculum. They co-operate with the Headteacher to formulate and approve all school policies and consider the school improvement plan annually. The governors have an important role in determining, with the senior management team, the future development of the schools.

Governors of the schools are also directors of the Academy and have a responsibility to determine the schools' budgets each year, considering the general running costs of the schools such as staffing, equipment, heating and cleaning. They also must approve any major projects, such as the building of new facilities. They must ensure that an annual return is made each year to Companies House and report annual to the Trustees of the Academy.  Copies of the minutes from Governing Body Meetings are available on request.
