A Local Governing Body has been established for Willow Academy.  The Local Governing Body’s overall purpose is to:

-          ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the academy;

-          hold the Headteacher and senior leaders to account for the educational performance of the academy and its children and the performance management of staff;

-          oversee the financial performance of the academy, making sure delegated money is well spent against the identified priorities and within the agreed budget;

-          actively embrace community, parental and staff engagement to raise the profile of the academy within the locality and beyond; encourage growth of the pupil population and support in staff recruitment and retention.

Governors operate within the remit of a Scheme of Delegation which can be downloaded from the Trust website at:
