The work of the Local Governing Body

Governors question, challenge, advise and engage in all aspects of running our academies; checking that leaders' actions are being made in the best interests of children, young people and families. Enclosed is a local governor role profile giving more detailed information. 

We are always interested in hearing from potential volunteers who feel they could make a difference to our young people's futures.   If you would like to discuss this further, please contact our Governance Professional, Jayne Newson, on 08452 415175 or email
