They are appointed, or elected, for a four year term of office.  The Local Governing Body work on behalf of the academy Trust to oversee and monitor the performance, standards and ethos of the academy and are responsible for ensuring the academy budget is used to support the academy development plan. The governors have strategic responsibility for planning; implementation and management is the role of the Head Teacher and staff.
