Academy Council

The Thurnby Mead Primary Academy Council

The Thurnby Mead Primary Academy Council is made up of volunteers (known as academy councillors) who commit their time to work alongside the leadership team of the school to play an important part in raising school standards.

The Academy Council has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

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

The Thurnby Mead Primary Academy Council meets regularly to meet these and other functions and responsibilities. The councillors also visit the school to ensure they understand what is happening and to monitor and evaluate the impact of actions.

Academy councillors can be contacted through the school. Any parent or staff councillor vacancies are advertised through the school communication systems and if necessary a ballot takes place to elect the new councillor.
