Holsworthy Cluster Governance
Welcome to our Academy Committee (Governors) section
Holsworthy Local Academy Committee is part of the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust and consists of Holsworthy Community College, Bradford Primary School, Bridgerule Primary School and Black Torrington Church of England Primary School.
There is a local Academy committee of members for the schools. The Academy committee has three core functions:
1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
2. Holding the Head of School / Executive Head of Primaries to account for the educational
performance of the schools and their pupils; and
3. Overseeing the financial performance of the schools and making sure that money is well spent.
The academy committee members recognise that the Headteacher and Executive Head of Primaries are responsible for the implementation of policy, day-to-day management of the schools and the implementation of the curriculum.
The Chair of Governors is Kate Scrivener. The academy committee meets every half term; between these meetings academy members visit the schools and focus on their core functions through the work of the committees. Academy members visit the schools regularly as part of their role in the monitoring of the school improvement plans. Feedback on all visits is given at meetings and this allows all academy members to be kept informed about progress, and also to be aware of any concerns that need to be addressed.
