Governors are representatives of the wider Academy community and include people drawn from the parents, the Academy staff, other members of the local community and/or people with special skills that could benefit the work of the governing body.

Governing bodies are expected to play three key roles:

  • They provide a strategic overview of the work of the Academy.
  • They act as a critical friend to the Academy.
  • They ensure accountability to the local community.


The committees undertake their work in conjunction with the Academy Improvement plan, which looks at all aspects of the Academy from standards and targets to issues governing leadership, personnel and physical resources.

Governors can be contacted through the Academy Office.

If you would like to speak to a member of the governing body, or for a copy of the governor meeting minutes, please contact the clerk to the governors, Mrs K Nightingale via [email protected]

You can also contact the Chair of Governors, Mrs Fran Sandall, direct by email – [email protected]

The current list of governors, as well as a historical record of previous governors, can be found at the bottom of this page within the ‘files’ section.

The Committee is responsible for monitoring and advising on the day to day financial operations and controls. It monitors the monthly management accounts, reviews and recommends the annual budget and account, and considers the adequacy of risk management and internal controls. It also focuses on all personnel, HR, premises and Health & Safety issues.
