The Board must establish an Academy Committee for each academy, which provides for the operational running of each academy, drawing on local representation rooted within the academy’s staff, parental, parish and neighbourhood communities.
The Academy Committee will: oversee the implementation of the Directors’ strategy, policy and procedures; monitor the effectiveness of the management in running the academy in accordance with the Directors’ strategy, policy and procedures; and report on the impact of the Directors’ strategic framework on the quality of provision, performance and standards of the academy.
Overall purpose of the committee
The school is part of the Romero Catholic Academy. The school converted on 1st August 2015.
