Ward Jackson Church of England Primary School

"All smiles returned"


Academy Council

Each school in DNDLT has a local governance committee called the Academy Council (AC). The membership of the AC is made up of councillors who are either ex-officio, appointed, co-opted or 
elected to the Academy Council. All councillors bring specific skills and knowledge to the role.

The AC meets half-termly and is responsible for the following functions:

  • Strategic planning of the school;
  • Monitoring the progress of the school’s priorities for improvement identified in the School Improvement Plan;
  • Holding the school’s senior leaders to account for the outcomes and progress of pupils;
  • Monitoring the school’s budget.

All Academy Councillors declare any interests at the beginning of the school year and this is recorded and kept on file.
