Braunton Academy’s Articles of Association have agreed that the Academy will have 14 Governors who are all Directors of the Academy Trust. There are 5 Parents, 4 Staff and 5 Community governors, who are drawn from our local community and are often ex-parents of the school, or people who work locally. The Governors work hard on behalf of the school and are committed to working together with the Principal, Staff and Parents in the best interests of our students.
Governors attend six Full Governing Body Meetings per year. In addition, Governors are assigned to the membership of one of the following Portfolio Groups – these are: Estate, Finance & Audit, Behaviour, Attitudes & Personal Development (including Safeguarding), Quality of Education, and Leadership, Management and Risk. Each group has the core aim of raising student achievement and maximising our funding. In addition, many Governors come into school on a regular basis to help with Staff Recruitment, Open Evenings, Presentation Evenings, Careers and Work Experience and Achievement Lunches for Students.
The Governing Body works closely with the Company Secretary/Clerk to the Governors. The Company Secretary/Clerk provides advice and support for the Governing Body, regarding law, policy and procedural matters and also supports the administration workload.
