Academies are publicly funded, independently governed schools. Each academy has a sponsor, in this case ARK Schools, which has a master funding agreement with the Secretary of State for Education. Each of ARK’s academies also has an individual supplementary funding agreement.
ARK Atwood Primary Academy is operated by ARK Schools, a charitable company incorporated to oversee the academies it sponsors.
The ARK Schools board is the legally responsible governing body for all academies in the network. In practice, the ARK Schools board delegates most relevant governance functions to the ARK Atwood Primary Academy Local Governing Body (LGB). This means that, unlike most maintained governing bodies, the LGB has no statutory responsibilities. This allows governors to concentrate on educational strategy, school outcomes and aspiration.
ARK Atwood Primary Academy’s LGB is made up as follows:
Six-10 members appointed by ARK Schools, to include the Chair – usually people with a local connection or interest who are committed to supporting educational opportunity in the area:
Governors are appointed/elected for two-year terms, up to a maximum of ten years. The initial term of the first Chair will be three years, with annual election by the LGB thereafter. Academy staff may not be Chair or Vice Chair of the LGB.
ARK Schools aims to create a balanced group that will have the right skills, connections and dynamic for the LGB to work well and support the school in achieving exceptional performance:
The current governors of ARK Atwood Primary Academy are:
To contact the Parent Governor, please contact the school office.
The current Clerk to Governors is Maria Freeman - Maria.Freeman@arkonline.org
