Rillington are proud to be part of the educational vision for Elevate Multi Academy Trust whilst retaining our own strong identity. The Trustees have allowed its Academies to retain the same composition for their local governing bodies, which is set out below.
The three core functions of the local governing board are:
- To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
- To hold the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its children.
- To oversee the financial performance of the Academy and make sure its money is well spent.
