Academy Governance


Who are we, and what do we do?

Concentrating in particular on the outcomes for pupils the Academy Governors, operating through the Terms of Reference, assist in holding the school to account. The Academy Governing Board comprises staff members, parent members and community members and each is appointed by the Trust Directors for the skills they will bring to the Academy.  Eaton’s Governing Board is made up of up to 9 volunteers to ensure efficient working practices.

Governors can always be contacted via the school.  We would love to hear your views on what the school is doing well, and what it could do better.
