Welcome to our Governors’ page
REAch2 Academy Trust has over 55 schools and is organised into 10 clusters. Our school is part of the East Anglia Region, Cluster 6.
Schools in this region are:
Colchester - Unity Primary Academy, Camulos Academy
Clacton - Kirby Primary Academy, Burrsville Infant Academy,
Sir Martin Frobisher Academy
Ipswich - Martlesham Primary, Sprites Academy
All our schools share the same governance structure and you can find information about the trust on the REAch2 website at www.REAch2.org. The Governance page gives details of how the Trust is organised, including the Articles of Association, the Master Funding Agreement and all the documents which relate to how the Trust was founded and how it runs today. You can also find details of who our trustees are.
Our school, like all the schools in the Trust, has a local governing body (LGB). There is a scheme of delegation, which details how the LGB should work. The LGB hold meetings during the year in which they help to support and challenge the school, its leadership and pupils to make sure that everyone achieves their full potential.
Our school’s LGB is made up of 4 trust-appointed members, who are volunteers, two parents, two staff members and our two co-headteachers. Other members of staff can be invited to meetings to discuss current issues. All governors must declare that they are working for the school in an open and honest way and fill in a Register of Interests and Record of Attendance.
The LGB also works alongside a regional board where region-wide issues are discussed. The Regional Board is made up of volunteers, just like an LGB, with head teachers and chairs of governors.
There is also a team of regional officers who provide support to the schools in finance, HR, estates and governance
