Governance

Our local academy board are dedicated to supporting the staff, infrastructure and especially the pupils and students collaboratively across Yeoman Park Academy and Redgate Primary Academy. They are volunteers who give their time and commitment freely.

The job of the local academy board is to support and challenge each academy’s senior leadership team to raise achievement and realise the potential of all the students, supporting the vision and ethos of the academy.

The academy board is responsible for a wide range of matters, with three core functions:

  • setting the vision and strategic direction of the academy
  • holding the academy director to account for its educational performance
  • ensuring financial resources are well spent

The Academies Financial Handbook (s2.5.2) requires the publication on the academy website of certain information about governance in academies.

Please find a linkĀ here to the Diverse Academies website, from where you can find details of our trustees, structure, and scheme of delegation.
