Academy Council

Academy Councillors are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher – who is responsible for day-to-day management – they set the school’s aims and policies.

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school

Academy Councillors do not take forward individual concerns; the correct school procedures must be followed if parents/carers have any worries.
