The Governing Body consists of people from the academy’s community, such as parents, staff and local businesses. Governors are volunteers and most serve for four years.
What do Governors Do?
Governors have a strategic overview of the school and are extremely supportive of staff and praise their dedicated efforts. Our positive partnership work ensures that decisions are made in line with our shared vision to provide the best quality education for our pupils.
Governors regularly support the School outside of scheduled meetings so that they have a thorough understanding of what is happening in school, they provide specialist skills to support monitoring and research.
The Governing Body meets at least three times each academic year; ie. once per term.
The Governing Body provides the Headteacher and Academy Staff with support and advice, drawing on their knowledge and experience. The chair of the Governing Body is Julia Vause and a summary of the current Governing Body Members for Waddington All Saints Academy can be seen below:
