Academy Council & Governance

Academy Councilors  are volunteers that use their skills to help to shape the school’s ethos and direction, and are firmly committed to its future success. The role of the Academy Council is to:

  • work with the school to ensure it delivers a high quality education
  • with the Headteacher (who is responsible for day to day management), set the school’s aims and policies
  • provide strategic direction for the school
  • act as a critical friend to the Headteacher
  • ensure accountability

Governors monitor the running of the school, including educational standards, finance and use of resources, overall direction and planning, curriculum and behaviour, staff appointments and training, and keeping everyone safe.

Our Academy Councilors are:

Mrs A Parkes (Vice Chair)

Mrs M Selway (Chair)

Monsignor D Smith
