Governors

For any enquiries relating to Governance, please contact the school office and ask to be put in touch with Pastor Ken Stone, the Chair of Governors.

The Governing Body

The Governing Body for Viewley Hill Academy is a very hard working and committed group of people who give their time voluntarily to oversee the management of the school and to ensure that an excellent quality of education is provided for our children. Governor term of office is four years.  The governors meet regularly throughout the year and are made up of a range of representatives from the local community.  We are fortunate to have a very strong skill set amongst our governors including a school business manager, a retired senior school improvement adviser, a serving headteacher, a local minister and and Early Years SEND specialist.  Our parent governors are key members of the governing body as their knowledge and understanding of the school community is invaluable in helping us develop and grow. The Governing Body is accountable for the academy’s performance and takes a key and active role in shaping the school’s future.

All boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

Governance Structure

The Governing Body meets as a whole once a term to consider the work of two main committees, to fulfil statutory duties related to policies and procedures and to work together in forward planning for the school.   The Finance and Resources Committee and School Improvement Committee meet at least once a term and these groups have very specific roles and responsibilities.  For further information on the scheme of delegation for governance functions, please open the PDF below. In addition to this, governors have regular review days in school where aspects of school improvement planning, teaching and curriculum evaluation and training take place.

Scheme of Delegation
