Sowing seeds of success: Growing courageous learners

Growing Courageous Learners.

Governors

 The local governing body exists to help the Academy provide a high quality education for children in a supportive, caring environment. It does this by:

  • setting the Academy's values, vision and strategic direction
  • challenging and supporting the Academy by continually monitoring, reviewing and evaluating its performance
  • ensuring that the Academy is accountable to its children, the local community, those who fund and maintain it and the staff it employs

The three core functions of the local governing board are:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • To hold the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its children.
  • To oversee the financial performance of the academy and make sure its money is well spent.

Governors are also responsible for overseeing the Academy's finances, checking that resources are being managed well and helping with the appointment of staff. We meet five times a year as a local Governing Body with every governor taking on specific link roles within the Academy. Minutes of our meetings are available from the office..

Types of Governors 

There are several different types of Governor:

  • Parent Governor

    Elected from parents at the Academy by parents at the Academy.

  • Staff Governor

    Elected from staff at the Academy by staff at the academy

  • Co-opted Governors

    Appointed by members of the Local Governing Body. They are intended to be representative of the local community and may add particular kinds of expertise.
