Academy Improvement Committee

Enquire Learning Trust has implemented a structure for all Academy Improvement Committees (formerly known as the Academy Local Governing Body).

The Academy Improvement Committee meets once every half term with committees operating in line with the Trust's Scheme of Delegation when any need arises, for example Pupil Discipline Committee or Appeals Committee.

The development of governance is an important part of Academy life. The role of Academy governors is to development a strong 'critical friend' relationship between the Trust Board and the Academy Improvement Committee.

The Chair of Governors can be contacted via the school (please see the 'Contact Us' tab).

Full details of the Members and Board of Trustees can be found in the Enquire Learning Trust menu of this website.

Register of Interests for the Academy Improvement Committee

Declaration of Business Interests is a standard agenda item on every Academy Improvement Committee meeting. In addition governors complete an annual registration of business interests form to comply with statutory financial regulations.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Requirements

School Governance (Constitution)(England) Regulations 2012 states that academy governors are required to be subject to a DBS check. To ensure compliance, members of our Academy Improvement Committee are required to undertake a DBS check as part of the appointment process.

Academy Improvement Committee Members

Local governors are appointed for a term of 4 years. After a period of 24 months 5 governors will be re-appointed for a further 4 years.
