Academy Council (Governing Body)
Sawtry Village Academy officially joined the CMAT family in April 2015. The Trust was formed with a simple and clear vision: ‘to ensure high quality education at the heart of the community.’
Each academy within the CMAT family retains their own Academy Council (Governing Body), identity and individuality.
While the Trust is the employer of all staff, it has delegated powers to the Sawtry Academy Council to exercise governance arrangements for this academy within the Trust.
The Academy Council is focused upon the individual school context, monitoring standards and achievement, and their local community needs and aspirations.
- Setting strategic priorities and plans
- Monitoring standards and achievement within the school
- Ensuring Trust policies are implemented
- Engaging with all stakeholders to improve outcomes
- Supporting and positively challenging practices within the Academy, through the School Leadership Team.
