The role of the Academy Advisory Board (formerly known as the Local Governing Body) is to focus on the leadership of the Academy, and in particular the quality of education and students’ personal development.

There are two sub-committees of the AAB. One has a focus on:

  • the quality of education;
  • student behaviour, attendance and punctuality;
  • our provision for personal development (including our commitment as a Rights Respecting School; Spiritual, Social, Moral and Cultural Development; Relationship and Sex Education).

The other sub-committee focuses on:

  • safeguarding;
  • equality;
  • our provision for SEND students;
  • our provision for looked after students and students eligible for ‘pupil premium’ funding;
  • the well-being of our staff;
  • health and safety.

Sub-committees meet at the start of each half-term (from November onwards, so meeting 5 times per year). They report back to the full AAB.
