GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE

Whilst Pioneer Academies Community Trust is ultimately accountable for the performance of each of its academies, Summerfields Primary Academy has a local governing body that is responsible for monitoring and reviewing the standards of its academy. 

 

The Academy Trust Board operates the principle of earned autonomy as it believes that best results will be achieved when each academy’s Local Governing Body receives a level of responsibility and autonomy appropriate to its specific circumstances. Where an academy has demonstrated it is a strong, self-improving organisation, it will need minimal day to day supervision from the Board of Trustees and the Local Governing Body will be given the autonomy to run the school within agreed delegated powers. Where an academy is performing below an acceptable standard,  the Trust has the legal and moral  authority to intervene, in order to bring about improvements.

 

The core business of the Local Governing Body is to:

  • Review and monitor the Academy Improvement Plan
  • Monitor and review Standards of attainment and progress
  • Review and monitor the curriculum and educational provision
  • Ensure sound financial planning, budget monitoring and best value

 
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

A written record of meetings are taken in the form of minutes and are available upon request, please contact Mrs L Baldwin-Smith, Company Secretary 01226 723691.
