Our Governance

REAch2 now has over 55 schools and is organised into 4 regions. Our school is part of the East Anglia region.

Schools in the region

Clacton – Kirby Primary Academy; Burrsville Infant Academy; Sir Martin Frobisher Primary Academy

Beccles – Beccles Primary Academy

Lowestoft – Gunton Primary Academy; St Margaret’s Primary Academy; Phoenix St Peter Primary Academy; Northfield St Nicholas Primary Academy

Ipswich – Martlesham Primary Academy; Sprites Primary Academy

All our schools share the same governance structure and you can find information about the trust on the REAch2 website at www.reach2.org. The Governance page gives details of how the Trust is organised, including the Articles of Association, the Master Funding Agreement and all the documents which relate to how the Trust was founded and how it runs today. You can also find details of who our trustees are.

Our school, like all the schools in the Trust, has a local governing body (LGB). There is a scheme of delegation, which details how the LGB should work. The LGB hold meetings during the year in which they help to support the school, its leadership and pupils whilst challenging to make sure that everyone achieves as much progress as they should.

Our school’s LGB is made up of 4 trust-appointed members, who are volunteers, two parents, two staff and the Head Teacher. They can invite other members of staff in to meetings to discuss current issues. You can find out about our governors here [link to governor details]. They have to declare that they are working for the school in an open and honest way and so fill in a declaration of interests’ form.

The LGB also works alongside a regional board where region-wide issues are discussed. The Regional Board is made up of volunteers, just like an LGB, with Head teachers and chairs of governors. There is also a team of regional officers, led by the
Regional Director, Andrew Rigby. They provide support to the schools in finance, HR, estates and governance.

We have to share this information with you about our governors and governance:
