We strive to ensure that the school serves its community by providing education of the highest quality in a supportive atmosphere based on the academy’s Christian vision and values.
We meet regularly during the term to support the academy in continuing to raise standards of achievement for all our pupils. Working together with the academy, we set and monitor development priorities and we act as critical friends to the Principal and other staff.
All Saints Church of England Academy is currently supported by the Ambitions Academies Trust APSC (Academy Priority Support Committee) structure whilst we strive to maintain rapid improvement in all areas.
Membership of this committee comprises of senior colleagues from Ambitions Academies Trust’s Executive Team and appointed volunteer Committee Members. The Committee has a Link Trustee assigned to them ensuring communication and accountability is fed back to the Trustees directly as set out in the AAT Scheme of Delegation. This scheme can be found in the document zone on our website.
When the academy is secure in its outcomes the governance model will transition to an Academy Advisory Committee (AAC). At this stage the Executive Team step back whilst continuing to provide internal support and challenge. Recruitment of additional volunteer Committee Members as required is undertaken prior to this transition to ensure capacity for local governance is in place.
The Link Trustee maintains the support and challenge in both the high support (APSC) and standard support (AAC) governance models ensuring continuity of support as per the Scheme of Delegation.
Current Committee Members are as below:
Sian Thomas – CEO, Ambitions Academies Trust
Paul Holman – Director of Outcomes, Ambitions Academies Trust (Chair of APSC)
Jon Webb – Director of Secondary Education, Ambitions Academies Trust
