Governance at Sir Martin Frobisher

Currently at Sir Martin Frobisher Academy, a Transformation Board is in place. A Transformation Board is a small group of people who are working with the school leadership to support and challenge – this helps improve your school as quickly as possible.

REAch2 has chosen a group made up of the Head Teacher, parents and local governors from other, successful REAch2 schools.  One of these is the Director of Education for REAch2, Tim Culpin, who is currently Chair of the Board at Sir Martin Frobisher Academy.

The Transformation Board has terms of reference which guide how it works.  These can be found on the Governance page of our website and also on the REAch2 website The governance page also includes details of the members of the Board.   The Board will meet twice a term as a minimum to discuss educational progress and achievement, financial health and issues such as safeguarding, premises, IT and staffing.  Members will also have a link areas in the school, such as safeguarding or finance to make sure they understand how the school is being run and also to make sure that all the legal compliance is in order.

The Board is supported by a clerk.

We are in the process of appointing a local governing body. The Board will hand over responsibility to the local governing body who will take up the support and challenge.
