Governance

As Astley is now part of the SYNERGY Multi-Academy Trust overall management of the six schools currently in the Trust is in the hands of a board of Directors.

However each school is required to have a Local Governing Board (LGB) made up of staff, parents and Trust appointed representatives. The LGB has been given delegated powers mainly within the areas of teaching and learning. The chair of Astley’s LGB is one of the Directors so there are close links between the LGB and main Board.

There are 10 governors on Astley’s LGB and any parent vacancies are advertised in the school’s newsletter. The LGB continues to represent different groups who have an interest in the school. We meet as a LGB at least twice a term.

As governors we have been given delegated powers mainly in the areas of teaching and learning. It is our responsibility both to the school and to the Directors to work together with the Head teacher, staff and pupils to produce a successful learning environment at Astley. To do this we set the strategic direction for the school, agree targets for pupil achievement, ensure a proper curriculum is in place and approve the School’s Improvement Development Plan including monitoring and evaluating progress and making sure objectives are achieved.

The minutes from our meetings are available to view from the school office or via the link from this webpage. As governors we welcome comments from parents regarding the school at any time. You can contact the Governors via the school office or you can email the Chair of Governors with any questions or comments you may have.

Our Schools

Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
