The Regional Board operates as part of a broader framework of governance within the Trust and further details of this are available from the following link:

In addition to the formal governance framework, the academy has a forum to promote strong links with parents and the local community. While it is not part of the governance of the academy, the forum provides a means for its members to gain a better understanding of the functioning of the academy and identify matters they would like to have considered by the Regional Governing Body.
