Governing Body

We take pride in the shared responsibility we have 

Dear Parents, Families, Children and Staff,

My name is Huda Ahmed and I am the recently elected Chair of Governors for High Hazels Academy. I‘m honoured and privileged to be given such a responsibility and want to emphasise my commitment to the education of children at the school. I am dedicated to working hard with my Governing Body colleagues, the Executive Headteacher, school staff, parents, partners and wider community to help the academy become Outstanding. 

I very much want this to become one community school where everybody is welcomed. Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where all our children achieve their full potential. 

With your support, High Hazels Academy will become a place of excellence where all children make good progress and achieve their academic, creative, personal, physical, faith and spiritual potential. We aim to instil strong moral values whereby children can learn respect for themselves and others. 

I value our professional and highly motivated school staff. The partnership which is beginning to develop between school, parents and community will provide further opportunities for our children, for parents and for families. 

High Hazels Academy is moving forward at pace and we have an exciting and positive journey ahead of us. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to share it with you. 

Yours Sincerely, 

 

Huda Ahmed

Chair of Governors

Local Governing Body (LGB) membership

Our LGB membership was updated when we became High Hazels Academy. The LGB meets regularly and works with school leaders to monitor academic achievement and the well-being of pupils, including welfare and health and safety. It also monitors the financial management of the school and provides advice on our future direction.

Governance

High Hazels Academy is a part of United Learning whose Trustees hold the ultimate responsibility for the governance of each United Learning school.

The Department for Education’s governance handbook identifies the essentials of effective governance as follows:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

United Learning’s Trustees delegate certain key roles and responsibilities to the school’s Local Governing Body (LGB) and these are set out clearly in Appendix 4 to the United Learning LGB Members Handbook, which can be seen on the United Learning website.
