Governance

Governors work together to provide an independent oversight of the management and operation of the Academy, with the aim of improving the quality of the education provided, raising standards and making decisions in the best interests of the Academy’s pupils, staff and wider community.

 

The Governing Body does not run the Academy or become involved with daily management; this is the job of the Principal and the leadership team. Governors help shape the aims and aspirations of the Academy, bringing a range of perspectives to all issues.

 

There are a number of key aspects to the work of the Governing Body. They set policies, establish the Academy development plan, ensure that public funds are spent appropriately and effectively, ensure statutory duties are complied with and provide rigorous accountability.

 

All Governors are volunteers who meet as a Full Governing Body at least three times a year. 

 

The Governing Body of The Flitch Green Academy is comprised of:

Parent Governors:

Shawn Collom

Rachel Earle (Vice Chair)

Emma Goodings

Jon Shakallis

James Pikett

Community Governors:

Richard Barrett (Chair)

Laurence Miles

Jackie Pick

Katie Bailey

Chris Criscione
