Governors

Our Governing Board is made up of a group of individuals from both the academy and the wider community.  The role of the academy Governing Board is to provide strategic leadership, accountability and to act as a critical friend.

The Governing Board meets at least three times a year, and establishes an overall framework for the governance of the academy and determines Membership, Terms of Reference and Procedure for   Sub-Committees. The Full Governing Board delegates policy forming powers to the appropriate Sub-Committee.

The three Sub-Committees are the Finance and Premises Committee, Teaching and Learning Committee and Staff and Students Committee.  The Term of Office for Governors, with the exception of the Headteacher, is four years. 

The academy has the following Governor categories, as per the Articles of Association and Funding Agreement:-

  • The Headteacher
  • Governors (up to 3) - who are appointed by the Academy Trust
  • Community Governors (up to 3) - Co-opted by the Academy Trust
  • Parent Governors (not less than 2 and up to 6) – elected by parents
  • Staff Governors (up to 3) – elected by staff, representing teaching and non-teaching staff
  • Student Associate Governors

The term of office for our Governors is 4 years.
