Dear Parents and Carers,
As Chair of the Local Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to Ormiston Cliff Park Primary Academy. We are a body of volunteers committed to ensuring the academy is the best it can be and provide for all the pupils in our care. We are supported in our roles by the Ormiston Academies Trust. There are three main areas of our work: to ensure there is a clear vision for the academy, to hold leaders to account for the standards in the academy, and to ensure finances are managed effectively. We aim to both challenge and support the academy in all aspects of work.
We hope your children enjoy their time at Ormiston Cliff Park Primary Academy, and look forward to meeting you in the future.Mark Thorpe
School governors are volunteers from the wider Academy community that form the Local Governing Body (LGB). Governors come from all aspects of an academy community; parents, staff, members of the local community and local authority; to help guide and oversee the running of an academy. The Governing Body are expected to assist in maintaining standards, ensuring accountability, and supporting and challenging school leadership to strive for excellence.
The following are the mandatory committees all academies have to operate – they can have more if they wish, but not instead of SPB and FGP.
Ormiston Cliff Park Primary Academy’s Local Governing Body have a common aim: to ensure pupils at the Academy are given the opportunity to achieve their best.
You do not need to have specific training or have a child attend Ormiston Cliff Park Primary Academy to become a governor. All we ask is that you are willing to give at least a few hours a month and have a desire to contribute to the continued development of the academy.
All successful applicants will be given an induction and have the opportunity to attend training to further develop their skills and abilities. If you are interested in volunteering as a school governor and would like to find out more please contact the Chair of Governors.
