The Governing Body

 

The Academy Council is the new name for the governing body and we work closely with the Headteacher and other staff to set a strategic direction for Foley Park Community Primary Academy. We act as a ‘critical friend’, complementing and enhancing the school leadership by making sure all statutory duties are met. These include appointing the Headteacher, providing support and challenge, and holding the school to account for its impact on improving outcomes for all pupils. This continues to be particularly important following the school’s "Journey to Good", and beyond.

 

The Headteacher, who is a member of the Academy Council, runs the school on a day to day basis. The Academy Councillors on the other hand, are responsible for the strategic overview of the school and for overseeing the curriculum. We also handle formal complaints, personnel issues, buildings, health and safety, policies and some disciplinary matters.

 

The Academy Council includes representation from school staff, the community and parents; people who have experience and skills that enable us to support and advise on school issues.

 

The Academy Council meets regularly and has  a number of sub-committees which look  in more detail at such areas as  Health and Safety, Disadvantaged pupils, Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Safeguarding, and the Curriculum.  the Academy Council feeds into the Victoria Academy trust board.
