Rushy Meadow Primary Academy has a ‘Local Governing Board’, which is effectively a committee of the Trust (Cirrus Primary Academy Trust). The accountability of the academy rests with the Trust, and many responsibilities are delegated to the Local Governing Board.
To find out about the structure of the Trust, please see this page on the Trust’s website.
Rushy Meadow’s Board consists of:
- 2 elected parent governors
- 1 elected Staff Governor
- 1 co-opted Staff governor
- 4 other co-opted governors
- 1 Head of School
Total number of governors: 9
Trustees (including the CEO) are able to attend Local Governing Board meetings.
The Governing Board works closely with the Senior Leadership Team to oversee the strategic direction of the school. It does this by offering support, constructive advice, a sounding board for ideas, and help where needed. It challenges, asks questions and seeks information to ensure that the best interests of the children at Rushy Meadow are met. All governors work on a voluntary basis.
The LGB meets at least once a term, to discuss issues and make decisions related to the teaching and learning within the school. Additionally, the LGB representatives from the Resources, Governance and Curriculum and Standards Trust Committees feedback and discuss issues from these committees.
The LGB also performance manages the Head and has a Pay Committee which works with the Head as part of the Performance Management Appraisal process.
