GOVERNANCE AT HEATH HAYES ACADEMY
Governors at Heath Hayes are all volunteers from a variety of different backgrounds, knowledge and skill. Between the members of the board, a variety of key roles are held to ensure governors have a complete knowledge of our school, working with our headteacher and senior leadership to provide all of the children in our school with the best possible education.
Outside the school team, the immediate and wider school community all have an important part to play in the success of our school and our ability to deliver the best opportunities we can to our children. That is why we actively welcome all our parents, carers and grandparents to get in touch, to tell us your feedback on any aspect of school life, on behalf of your children or yourself.
You can do this via several means:
School app; go to the menu, (top left), surveys, parent survey for governors.
School office: please pop in to arrange an appointment
(please be mindful that communication via the app or email is not confidential, any communication received can be accessed by all school governors and some members of school staff.
Should you have a confidential concern or complaint, please contact us, via any of the above methods, to request a confidential call or meeting).

WHAT WE DO - Reach2 local governance at Heath Hayes Academy
Governors work with the senior leadership, strategically and do not play a role in the day to day running of school. This is pivotal to ensure that the day to running of the school is effective and that all elements of school life have positive impact for our children enabling them to achieve the best they possibly can.
Governors have the same high expectations of the team at Heath Hayes, as they do for every child that attends our school and the crux of all decisions for our governors and school leadership is always what the best outcome/ solutions for the children is.
