As the local Academy Advisory Committee (local governors), we strive to ensure that the school serves its community by providing education of the highest quality in a supportive atmosphere based on the academy’s Christian vision, values and ethos.

We meet regularly throughout the school year to support and challenge the academy to ensure the highest standards of achievement and best possible outcomes for all our pupils. Working together with the academy, we set and monitor development priorities and we act as critical friends to the principal and other staff.

The committee compromises of a maximum of 8 members in total.  There are five positions for general volunteer members, two positions for parent members and one position for a staff member.

The Committee has a Link Trustee allocated to them ensuring communication and accountability is fed back to the Trustees directly as set out in the AAT Scheme of Delegation.
