Academy committees are crucial to support the staff, infrastructure and pupils of a school, they are made up of volunteers who give their time and commitment freely. In the coming months, we will be setting up a local academy committee for Thoresby Vale Primary Academy. If you are interested in getting involved, we would love to hear from you – please email us at office@thoresbyvaleprimary-ac.org.uk.

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

Governors play an important role in trying to ensure that every student at the academy gets the best possible education. Governance concentrates on strategic functions and the focus of these is determined by the trustees on the Diverse Academies Board within our scheme of delegation. The focus for governors on our academy committee broadly fits into four key categories:

  • Standards
  • Safeguarding
  • SEND
  • Stakeholders

Governors get to know the academy through reports and data together with visits into the academy and meeting staff and students.

Get involved

Governors play an important role in trying to ensure that every child at the academy gets the best possible education.

Being an academy governor is a hugely rewarding form of voluntary work. It offers the opportunity to make a real contribution to the education of our younger generation right at the cutting edge.

If you would like to discuss being a governor, please get in contact by emailing office@thoresbyvaleprimary-ac.org.uk
