The Local Advisory Board of Highfields Academy is made up of up to 12 members, which consist of parents, staff, co-opted governors and a member of the local authority.
As a team we are collectively responsible for determining, monitoring and keeping under review the broad policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates.
Highfields Governors are invited to attend all meetings of which there are two per term. Details of the special responsibility of each Governor and their terms of office are detailed below.
Parent Governors are appointed to the Governing Body by parents, Co-Opted Governors are appointed by Directors, and Staff Governors are appointed by staff.
There are two meetings per term, one focusing on Teaching & Learning and a second focusing on Operational matters. Our main objectives as a governing body are to support and challenge initiatives in school, to be ultimately accountable for the schools operation and to provide the strategic overview for the school.-
