Our Governing Body meetings are usually held in the evening on termly basis and dates and times can be found in the calendar on the home page. We attend training sessions and seminars to help us keep up to date with changes in schools and education and to help us do our job effectively. We also go into the academy to meet with the head teacher, other members of staff and scholars to help us find out how the school is progressing towards its targets.
