Welcome to our Governance section
Histon and Impington Brook Primary School is part of Meridian Trust. The Trust was formed in April 2022 with a simple and clear vision ‘to ensure high quality education for all at the heart of the local communities’.
The school has an Academy Council (AC) which provides local governance. It is made up of volunteers from the local community, parents, headteacher and staff.
The AC is focused upon the individual school context, monitoring standards and achievement, and supporting and challenging school leaders to provide the best possible education for all the children and young people. The AC's role includes:
Setting strategic priorities and plans
Monitoring standards and achievement within the school
Ensuring Trust policies are implemented
Engaging with all stakeholders to improve outcomes
Supporting and positively challenging school leaders.
The AC allocate specific members to take responsibility for monitoring a particular area for example in safeguarding and finance in which they hold the school's leadership to account by providing challenge and support within an agreed framework. The AC meet between four and five times in the year. There are no sub-committees as these are run on a trust level.
