Support For Governors

We recognise that the role as a governor is a significant commitment to make and we want all of our governors to feel supported in performing their vital role well.

We want all our children to grow up in a society where everyone has the chance to make the most of themselves and academy governors have a key role to play in helping to make sure every child has the best start in life.

As a new or long standing governor, there is always more to learn about how our academies and the education sector work. Whatever your background you, along with our fellow governors will take the strategic decisions about our academies and ensure that each academy is accountable to its community. Under the strategic leadership of the Multi Academy Trust Board, Local Governing Body and the Chief Executive Officer of the Trust, Principals and senior management teams are responsible for the day to day management of the academy.

We provide induction and on-going training so that our governors are well-prepared for the exciting and challenging role they taken on. We have a dedicated team site for governors using Microsoft 365 for easy access to information anywhere, anytime. This site provides all of our governance files and documents. In addition key staff are allocated areas of responsibility for responding to governor requests for further information or for supporting governors who want to become more expert in key areas.  (See attached table for details)

We know that our governors want to do all that they can to ensure high academy standards and give every child in our academies the opportunity to progress, to succeed and to fulfill their potential. We are delighted that they give their time, energy and commitment to making a real difference to education.
