Local Advisory Body

Welcome to the Governors’ page. School Governors have general responsibility to parents and the Department for Education (DFE). They support effective leadership of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation and policies.

All Governors have volunteered to work and support Broadfield Academy and come from a range of backgrounds. They bring a variety of skills and knowledge to ensure that the school is continuously improving.

Governors help to decide school policy and share responsibility for the leadership of the school. They advise and support the Principal and staff, working with the school to meet the needs of the children whilst ensuring that all school policies and procedures are in place. They act as a link between the school and the community. Governors receive regular training, updates and support from Aspire Trust.

Whilst the Governing Body lead in particular areas, they are all expected to have knowledge of all areas to support the school. The full Local Advisory Board (LAB) meet 6 times a year. In addition, each Governor will make additional visits to the school for their lead aspects, to visit their classes, to support school events and to attend any meetings with the Academy.

If you would like to contact one of our a Governors, please speak to the school office.

If you are interested in becoming a Governor, please contact the school office to find out if there are any vacancies.
