Welcome to the Governors’ section of the Sheringham High School website which I hope you will find interesting and informative.
The North Norfolk Academy Trust currently consists of four schools working in partnership; Sheringham High School, Stalham High School, Antingham and Southrepps Primary School and Gresham Village Primary School.
This section gives a broad outline of the role of the Sheringham High School Governors, how we go about fulfilling our responsibilities and who we are. It also provides you with a description and aims of the North Norfolk Academy Trust.
Chair of Governors
North Norfolk Academy Trust
Sheringham High School became an academy in November 2011 and went on to form North Norfolk Academy Trust. The Trust is passionate about raising standards for our young people in North Norfolk. We aim to give students the very best education. Having Sheringham High School, Antingham and Southrepps Primary School, Gresham Village Primary School and Stalham High School working closely together will bring about enormous benefits for all four schools.
There are currently five Trustees: John Wollocombe (Chair), Gill Pegg (Vice chair), Dr Andrew Richardson (Chief Executive Officer), Constance Tyce and Mary-Jane Edwards.
The Trustees are responsible for the strategic direction of all four schools, but delegate some powers for local decision making to the governing bodies of the schools. Governors have the same legal duties and responsibilities as company directors, and duties under charity law as charity trustees.
Sheringham High School Governance
The governing body of Sheringham High School consists of 7 governors which includes 2 parent governors.
The Local Governing Body meets at least three times per academic year. At each meeting we receive a report from the Headteacher, updates on Pupil Premium, Safeguarding, Finance, Personnel and Curriculum. Other items are discussed or approved at specific times of the year, for example exam results, planning for school improvement, monitoring standards and reviewing the budget.
We also attend public events such as the Year 6 transition evening, the Sixth Form open evening, school performances, the annual awards evenings and parents’ evenings. Please come and talk with Governors while you are at these events. They will be wearing governor lanyards.
In addition, some Governors are designated as responsible for Child Protection, SEND, Health and Safety. In this role Governors regularly come into school to meet with staff and students."
