Governors are appointed/elected up to a maximum of four years. The initial term of the first Chair will be three years, with annual election by the GB thereafter. Academy staff may not be Chair or Vice Chair of the GB.

Meetings of the Full Governing Body are held at least once per term. Committees may be formed as and when required to address school issues.
The Articles of Association below prescribe the internal management, decision making and running of the academy trust and its liability. The Memorandum and Articles of Association are also annexed to the funding agreement for our academy.
The Funding Agreement is the contract between the Secretary of State for Education and the academy and sets out the terms on which the academy is funded. Please see the document below to view the master funding agreement for our academy. The Funding Agreement specifies how the academy is run, its duties and the powers the Secretary of State has over the academy. The Funding Agreement is the method by which academies are held accountable to the Department for Education (DfE). In places the Funding Agreement makes specific references to existing legislation to ensure that academies operate in a similar fashion to other state-funded schools and that there is parity between academies and other state schools. Funding Agreements are not static and may be updated as the law and policy relating to academies changes.
