The Local Advisory Board of Highfields Academy is made up of up to 12 members, which consist of parents, staff and co-opted governors.
As a team we are collectively responsible for determining, monitoring and keeping under review the broad policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates.
Highfields Governors are invited to attend all meetings of which there are two per term. Details of the special responsibility of each Governor and their terms of office are detailed below.
Parent Governors are appointed to the Local Advisory Board by parents, Co-Opted Governors are appointed by Directors, and Staff Governors are appointed by staff.
There are two meetings per term, one focusing on Teaching & Learning and a second focusing on Operational matters. Our main objectives as an advisory board are to support and challenge initiatives in school, to be accountable for the schools operation and to support the Trust Board in providing the strategic overview for the school.
