Advisory Board

The role of the Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is a corporate body. They have considerable responsibilities working as part of a governing body but not as individuals.

The Advisory Board sets the general direction of the school, with the main aim always being to provide a high standard of education for all pupils of all abilities.

Members do not intervene in the day-to-day management of the school as this is the role of the Headteacher and senior leadership team.

The main role of the Advisory Board is to:-

  • Help the academy to set high standards by planning for the school’s future and setting targets and priorities for school improvement.
  • Constantly keep the work of the academy under review, developing, agreeing and reviewing policies to ensure they will help to raise standards.
  • Have a clear understanding of the work of the academy, offer support and advice but also questioning and challenging in order to make improvements.
  • Help the academy respond to the needs of parents and the wider community
  • Hold the academy accountable to the public for what it does.

The Advisory Board must have a professional attitude and use its collective skills to benefit the children, parents and community.
