The Governing Body of Lakelands Academy is formed of people from all walks of life - from parents of children in the academy, to members of the local community who want to give something to the School.

All give hugely of their time, free of charge, endeavouring to ensure that your child’s education is the best it can be.

The role of the governing board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
  • The headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, day to day management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the Governing Board.

The full Governing Body usually meets four times a year, but because the running of a school is a complex issue, the Governing Body is also split up into two main sub-committees. These are Finance, Staffing and General Purposes and Teaching and Learning. There are also a series of ad hoc committees that meet as necessary to deal with issues such as Admissions.

Further information, if required, is available via the Clerk to the Board of Governors Miss J Warren at admin@lakelandsacademy.org.uk
