Vacancy for Academy Council member within Kingdown School

Would you like to take an active role in supporting our Academy and its students?

We are looking for new representatives to join our Academy Council as a parent, grandparent or carer of one of our students or as a member of the local community.

The Academy Council operates as a sub-committee of The Acorn Education Trust Board of Trustees.

As a member of the Academy Council this role is to both support and challenge the school.  You will need to ask questions to help investigate how the school is progressing.  Simply by asking key questions and listening to the responses, you can help.

Much like a Governing Body, the Academy Council’s role is to:

  • Ensure your children learn in a safe environment and to the maximum of their ability
  • Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Hold the Head to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its students
  • Promote the safety and wellbeing of students including behaviour, discipline and attendance.

You will be provided with training and support and would be expected to attend 3 meetings during the academic school year.

If you have the skills, time, commitment and discretion to help Kingdown move forward please contact Zoe Stockley, Governance Adviser for an application form.
