School Governors

As an Academy, we have a Rapid Improvement Board &(RIB) made up of Directors of the Trust and members of the local community.

The RIB meets on a regular basis to ensure that:

  • The Academy acts in accordance with its ethos, values and goals
  • All decisions are made in the best interests of the Academy and its pupils
  • Leaders in the Academy are held to account for their decisions and actions
  • Academy funds are appropriately spent, with a clear and transparent audit trail

All Governors are appointed by the Creative Education Trust. There are no Governing Body Committees.
