Local Governing body

Link to The Rose Learning Trust governance documents and policies.

Welcome to our Governors’ section.Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities, and terms of appointment for each Governor.

Here at Crowle Primary Academy, we are very proud to work with and be part of a team of an outward looking academy that is striving to outstanding.  As members of the Governing Body, we see the immense effort and dedication that goes into moving our academy forward and improving standards.  It is our role to support and challenge the academy to do even better.   

Our governors are an important link between the academy and our local community.  They are made up of parents of children at the academy, staff at the academy and community representatives. 

The Governing Body, alongside the Headteacher and staff, are responsible for the academy.   We hold the academy to account for the standards and progress it achieves - we aim to improve the academy and pupil performance.  We help make important decisions about the academy, support academy improvements by working with the staff to put in place a Developing Excellence Plan, we interview and select staff, oversee the performance management of the staff and monitor how the academy budget is spent to provide value for money. We work with the CEO of the Rose Learning Trust to appoint the Headteacher and delegate to her the responsibility of the day to day running of the academy.  Any important decisions are made by the Governing Body as a whole. The Governors operate at a strategic level. 

We have a Local Governing Board meeting at least once a term. 

The Finance and Resources Committee and the Curriculum Committee meet each term. All governors are invited to these meetings. Either the Chair of Governors or the Vice Chair will lead these meetings. 

If you wish to contact the Chair of Governors, this can be done in writing using the academy's address. 

Governors are individuals committed to improve the performance of the academy for the benefit of all students.  Outstanding academies require outstanding governance.  The Governor role is as much about being a critical friend as it is about holding the academy to account about all aspects of the school’s performance. There is a requirement to attend a meeting each term and Governors are actively encouraged to visit the academy to carry out agreed monitoring activities. The role does require you to volunteer some of your time but is very rewarding.  If you are interested in becoming a governor, please contact Rhonda Blakemore (Headteacher) at the academy.
