Welcome to our Governance section
Hatton Park Primary School is part of Meridian Trust. The Trust was formed with a simple and clear vision ‘to ensure high quality education for all at the heart of the local communities’.
The school has an Academy Council (AC) which provides local governance. It is made up of volunteers from the local community, parents, headteacher and staff.
The Academy Council is focused upon the individual school context, monitoring standards and achievement, and supporting and challenging school leaders to provide the best possible education for all the children and young people. The Academy Council role includes:
- 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 school leaders.
Each AC member takes on a responsibility for monitoring a particular area, in which they hold the school's leadership to account by providing challenge and support within an agreed framework. The AC meets up to six times in the year. There are no sub-committees.
