Governance

In This Section

Our local academy board are dedicated to supporting the staff, infrastructure and especially the students at the National Church of England Academy. They are volunteers who give their time and commitment freely.

The job of the local academy board is to support and challenge the academy’s senior leadership team to raise achievement and realise the potential of all the students, supporting the vision and ethos of the academy.

Find out more about our governors via the links below.

The Academies Financial Handbook (s2.5.2) requires the publication on the academy website of certain information about governance in academies.

Governor Mark

Governors at National Church of England Academy were successful in securing Governor Mark in May 2016. This nationally recognised standard measures the effectiveness of governors and the work they do.

In the report to the academy, independent assessors congratulated governors on the high quality of governance demonstrated by the governing board. They also praised the best practice shown in:

  • The commitment, passion, enthusiasm and engagement of governors which were evident in paperwork and the conversations during the assessment.
  • The governing board’s strategic approach to ensuring sufficient teaching capacity in core subject areas.
  • The innovative way the governing board had been working with another academy in the DALP partnership to grow and develop 6th Form provision.

The Governor Mark award runs for three years to the end of May 2019
