Academy Governance Committee (AGC)

We have an Academy Governance Committee (AGC) that has some delegated responsibilities from the Trust Board of Directors as outlined in the Trust’s Scheme of Delegation. They engage with our local community. They do not hold the academy to account but carry out the following role: 

Vision and Values 

  • Agree the vision and values for the academy with reference to the SIAMS Schedule, in partnership with the academy community, ensuring they are aligned with the Trust’s Vision and embracing equality. 
  • Monitor that the vision and the values are being ‘lived out’ in all aspects of the life of the academy.

Our local governors form our Academy Governance Committee which meets six times per year, once at the beginning of the academic year and one meeting per term, to discuss and plan strategically how to drive school improvement. The governing body consists of community, church, parent and staff governors with elected Chair of Governors and Vice Chair of Governors.

About Us

Situated in the picturesque village of Staverton, our small village school is a well established and integral part of the local community. We enjoy very secure links with our local church, St. Mary's, and the strong Christian ethos and family feel within our school is shared with all of our visitors. In August 2014, our school became an academy, joining the Peterborough Diocese Education Trust.
