Our Governors

Each Attain Academy Partnership academy is accountable to the Trust Board. The Local Governing Bodies facilitiate this and ensure that the academies within the Trust can realistically meet the requirements of the Trust.

The Local Governing Body consists of appointed and elected members from all sections of the community. They can be parents, staff at the school, residents in the locality or representatives of local businesses.

The aim of the Local Governing Body is to make sure that the academy is a safe, happy and pleasant environment for the children and staff to learn and play together.  They ensure that the education your child receives is the best that can be provided.

The Governors meet every half term as a Local Governing Body to discuss specific areas of academy business. Governors attendance at LGB meetings may be found here.
