STRATEGIC GOVERNING BODY

THE STEP BOARD OF TRUSTEES

As an Academy, we are accountable to the board of trustees.

The names and contact details for the members can be found here:
STEP Academy Trust Governance

The name STEP, an acronym, reflects the aspirational nature of the organisation – Striving Together for Excellence in Partnership. Inspired by the commitment to improve children’s life chances, STEP Academies work together to provide high quality learning experiences for all their pupils.

STEP Governors for Burfield and Hawkes Farm

At Burfield we share a strategic governing body with another local academy, Hawkes Farm. The members and their responsibilities are as below:

Chair of Governors Brigid Wells Community Governor
Deputy Chair of Governors TBC TBC
Safeguarding and Children Looked After Claire Findley Community Governor
SEND and Inclusion Lisa Farley Parent Governor
Teaching and Learning David Duke

 

Dee Hughes

Community Governor

Staff Governor

Assessment and Outcomes Oliver Chadwick Community Governor
Website Compliance Kimberley Reed Staff Governor

The chair of governors can be contacted via the school office at either school. If you would like to contact the chair of governors please leave your details with the office and they will be passed on.

Alternatively, you can give a sealed letter marked confidential to the office addressed to The chair of Governors. Any envelope so received will be passed to the Chair of Governors, unopened.

 

“STEP First” is the notion that, first and foremost, everyone is committed to being part of The STEP Academy Trust. All governors must be fully aligned to the Trust’s Mission and Vision. Although serving one or more particular Academies, governors are members of the wider STEP team. We are all one team, in one organisation, working towards the same goal: to be outstanding in all we do – STEP First!

STEP Governance Structure

Recent changes introduced by the Department for Education (DfE) allow academy trusts to establish a local governing body that is responsible for two or more academies.

Composition of the Strategic Governing Bodies (SGB)

Strategic Governing Bodies will have a maximum of 12 Governors as follows:

  • Parent x2 (elected, ideally one from each Academy)
  • Staff x2 (Headteachers)
  • Staff x2 (elected, ideally one from each Academy)
  • Board of Trustees Representative x1
  • STEP Governors x5
  • Temporary Co-Opted Governors (according to need)

It is the belief of the Board of Trustees that this new governance structure, underpinned by sound principles, will make best use of our strengths, will address our challenges and will provide the framework for each of our Academies to become Outstanding at the next opportunity.
