About the Governors

Governors

 

The school governing body consists of 10 members and since we became an academy, some of its duties have been taken over by the Flying High Board of Directors.  

 

The full governing body meets once per term and is responsible for ensuring the Academy fulfills its statutory obligations and that the pupils at the school are receiving a high quality education.

The majority of governor decision making takes place in two subcommittees that meet once per term prior to Full Governing Body meetings. Governors appointed post July 2018 have yet to be appointed to their subcommittees.  

 

Our subcommittees are:

 

Pupils & Personnel 

Finance, Strategic & General Purposes

This committee is responsible for shaping decisions about personnel needs and the best use of personnel to support the children at the school.  It also makes decisions about admission arrangements and other pupil related matters.
