The school is part of the Diocese of Coventry Multi Academy Trust and the Academy Governance Committee (AGC) is part of the governance structure of the Trust which is responsible for overseeing strategic decisions of the school. The governance structure for the trust as a whole is outlined in the governance structure documents here.
As an Academy Governance Committee we work in close partnership with the Headteacher and senior leadership team to ensure the best quality education is provided to every child. It is our responsibility to support, challenge, ask questions and ultimately represent the school community. The Academy Governance Committee acts as a ‘critical friend’ to the senior leadership team, questioning and challenging decisions in a constructive and professional way.
Academy Governance Committees have key roles in relation to: providing support, monitoring and challenge around educational experience and performance; church, community and stakeholder engagement and supporting alignment with Trust strategy, approach, ethos and values. The AGC Members meet regularly, visit the school when possible and during special events. As a team, we are able to support the school to function well and strive to provide a high standard of education.
As a Church of England Academy (part of the Diocese of Coventry Multi-Academy Trust) all the AGC Members support the school in being a place of inclusive welcome and education for everyone.
Message from the Chair
It’s a privilege to serve as Chair at St Michael’s Church of England Academy and Children’s Centre. We have great facilities, hardworking staff and fantastic children! As AGC Members our role is to think strategically and set the direction for the school. We are also here to support the staff and encourage the children.
The school AGC Members are drawn from many different walks of life, and represent some of the school’s partners: All Saints Church, Bedworth; the Nicholas Chamberlaine Trust, the Diocese of Coventry, the local community, the staff and the parents. Any of us would be delighted to answer questions or offer help in any way – please contact us via the school office.
