GOVERNANCE AT HEATH HAYES ACADEMY
The role of a Local Governor within Reach2 Multi-Academy Trust is an important one. The Trust Board establishes Local Governing Bodies for each of the Academies, for the most part made up of individuals drawn from the Academy’s community, both as elected and appointed members. The Local Governors are accountable to the Regional Board and the Trust Board (who in turn is accountable to the Department for Education) as well as to the communities they serve.
What is the role of the governing body?
The primary purpose of any school Governing Body is to strive for the best quality and provision of education for each child within our school and be prepared to be accountable for challenging and supporting the school to do this.
Having high expectation of progression throughout teaching and learning in our school and continuously challenging our Head Teacher and Leadership team to seek out and implement the things that need to be done next, is one way in which we do this, aiming to get the best possible outcome for every child.
What we do to benefit your children and you?
Our role at Heath Hayes, is one of support and challenge to the leadership team within school, we do not play an operational role of the day to day running of the school but a strategic role, to ensure that the day to running of the school is being effective, improving standards and supporting your children’s progress in their learning, to achieve the best they possibly can.
As many of us on the governing body have children within our school, we are not complacent or lacking in our expectations and ask a lot of questions and apply the same attitude and level of challenge across the board for all children. The crux of all decisions for our governors remains the children and the best possible outcomes and solutions for them.
