YOUR GOVERNORS - WORKING TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF ALL
Local schools have a special place in the communities they serve and The Nar Valley Federation of Church Academies is no exception. We have a dedicated team of teachers, ancillary staff and governors who, together with you, are anxious to see the highest standards of education made available for the growth of our children.
Each of the academies within the Nar Valley Federation of Church Academies is a member of the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT) and as such is governed by the DNEAT Board of Trustees. The Trust delegates responsibilities to the Local Governing Body (LGB) of each Academy or Federation via a document called a Scheme of Delegation. The LGB is made up of 7 Trust Appointed Governors, 3 elected Parent Governors (one from each of the Nar Valley Federation Academies) and 1 elected Staff Governor. The LGB Governors are volunteers who are drawn from different parts of the communities and who are passionate about the education of the children at our academies and bring diversity of knowledge and experience to the strategic management of the academies.
The three core functions for governance in academies are:
If you have a question about the Governing Body please don’t hesitate to contact us via your academy office.
There are currently two vacancies on the Local Governing Body of the Nar Valley Federation of Church Academies, which are for one Trust Appointed Governor and one Parent Governor for Sporle.
We are always interested in hearing your views on your academy, and if you have any questions you would like to ask us please do get in touch with our Interim Chair Jan Pierson via Castle Acre Cof E Primary Academy office, Tel: 01760 755305, Email: email@example.com (Miss Howman, Secretary & Clerk to Governors).
A copy of the Scheme of Delegation between the Dioceses of Norwich Multi-Academy Trust and the Local Governing Body of the Nar Valley Federation of Church Academies can be requested from the academy offices or downloaded from the Scheme of Delegation page of this website.
