Following the conversion to Schoolsworks Academy Trust in April 2018, the governance of the school now falls under the remit of the trust. A new School Community Council will be created during the summer term of 2018 to help support the leadership team in taking the school forward. 

The School Community Council (SCC) is an advisory council that reports to the trust's CEO and Director of Teaching and Learning. It is the role of the SCC to support and strengthen their Headteacher’s leadership through robust challenge; to work via the Chair to hold the Headteacher accountable for the performance of pupils and staff. School Community Councils meet on a termly basis at least three times per year.

 

The objectives of SCCs are to be accountable to the CEO and Board for:

  • Ensuring high standards of teaching and learning
  • Ensuring pupil happiness, welfare and safety
  • Ensuring efficient, appropriate and compliant use of local finances
  • Ensuring school premises are safe and secure and a good learning environment
  • Supporting Headteachers as required, for example, in recruitment or performance management
  • Ensuring effective engagement within the academy school’s local community

 

Anyone familiar with the traditional role of School Governor will recognise the work of the SCC. However, there are a few key differences which may help make the role more attractive to people with the right skills and time to play a part in developing our school. The document below will help to describe the SCC role more fully.
