Governors' Information

The Governing Body has a wide range of responsibilities, including planning the academy's future direction and raising the standards of pupil achievement through a process of challenge and support. Governors are also accountable to parents and the wider community for the performance of the academy.

The Governing Body comprises a number of different types of Governor, who all bring with them different experiences and skills developed through their life. This diversity adds strength to the work of the Governing Body. All governors undertake their work as volunteers.

Below is a table of our current Governing Body. If you would like to contact the Chair of the Board of Governors you may do so by emailing cweightman@thekingswoodacademy.org
