REAch2 now has 60 schools, and is organised into clusters. Our school is part of the Cluster 6. The Deputy Director of Education for this Cluster is Mrs Sinead Harper.
Schools in Cluster 6
Colchester – Camulos Primary Academy; Unity Primary Academy
Clacton – Kirby Primary Academy; Burrsville Infant Academy; Sir Martin Frobisher 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.
All of 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 3 trust-appointed members, who are volunteers, 2 parent members, 2 staff members and the Head Teacher. They can invite other members of staff in to meetings to discuss current issues. 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. Our current Governors are:
Rosie Carter – Trust Appointed Governor (Chair)
Alison Davies – Trust Appointed Governor
Nic Whittam – Trust Appointed Governor (Vice Chair)
Jenna Gifford – Parent Governor
Matt Spink – Parent Governor
Heather Hall – Staff Governor
Lily Hudson – Staff Governor
Emma Churchman – Head Teacher
Correspondence address for the Chair of Governors is:
Mrs R Carter,
Martlesham Primary Academy,
Black Tiles Lane,
Or you can contact the Chair of Governors via email Rosie.Carter@martleshamacademy.org
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.
