Academy Committee


Mrs Ward, Chair of Academy Committee.

We are a group called Academy Representatives – prior to our becoming part of a Multi-Academy Company we were called Governors.

As Representatives we work hard to support all our Staff as they strive to help our children reach their full potential.

Our task involves:

  • Performance and progress monitoring of our children.
  • Working and supporting staff.
  • Looking at and resources and best use of them.
  • Forward planning for continued progress of school.

The Academy Committee meets at least once a term. If needed extra meetings are arranged. Since Academy status the strategic committees are part of the Board of Directors role.

The Academy Committee comprises of Foundation Representatives (Church), Staff and Parents. Three of the representatives are Directors.
