The Governing Body is made up of six members, the Headteacher and an additional two Associate Governors. It consists of two parent and three staff elected Governors with the remainder appointed by Directors of the Perry Beeches Academy  Trust.

Our committees consist of the full Local Governing Body (LGB), and a designated member of the LGB for each of our Key Priorities, plus SEND and Safeguarding.

What are Governing Bodies For?

Governors are the largest volunteer force in the country and their overall purpose is to help schools and academies raise standards and provide the best possible education for their students.
The Governing Body does not manage Perry Beeches the Academy but it does give direction and focus by providing strategic leadership.

What are the roles of the Governing Body?

To challenge and support the Headteacher.
To oversee the academy’s improvement plan, strategic aims, values and ethos.
To carry out statutory responsibilities, such as safeguarding.
To agree and monitor plans and policies.
To make creative use of available resources.
To monitor and evaluate performance.
To communicate openly with parents, staff and the local community.

How does the Governing Body Work?

The Governing Body works as a group, taking collective responsibility for all decisions. Governors work in close partnership with the Headteacher who, as the lead professional, advises and assists the Governing Body to carry out its functions.
The Governing Body includes people with a wide range of skills, experience and backgrounds, all of whom have equal status and rights as Governors. Governors are encouraged to broaden and develop their skills, knowledge and confidence through engaging in training opportunities.

Each governing committee meets once each term to discuss key areas such as student performance, the curriculum, staffing, finance, premises and health and safety. It is important for Governors to get to know the academy and its staff, which they do by regularly visiting and attending Academy events and open days whenever possible.  Governors take on specific roles linked to aspects of the academy’s development plan and with members of the Senior Leadership Team.
