Welcome and Introduction to our Community Council
The Trust governance model recognises that Community Councils are, whilst a full and formal part of the governance structure in line with the Trust’s Articles of Association, wholly advisory bodies who focus on;
The ethos and values of the school;
The ambition, appropriateness and effectiveness of the school’s curriculum for its children;
The wellbeing of pupils, families and staff; and
Supporting senior leaders to achieve the school’s identified improvement priorities for the academic year.
Community councillors are a much valued group of volunteers that play a crucial role in our school offering challenging but positive and proactive support to the Principal and Senior Leadership team on behalf of the children and community that the school serves. They know and celebrate the strengths of the community that the school serves alongside holding the highest aspirations and expectations for our pupils.
Community councillors are appointed from current parents, staff and pupils alongside committed individuals from the wider community. Councillors have an interest in the education and wider opportunities offered by the school to all pupils and have some free time to give to support the school to build the foundations for a successful education that enables each student to discover the joy of learning; help them to fulfil every aspect of their potential; and encourage their growth into effective citizens, ready to play their part in the world and their community.
