Governance for Acle Academy

Our Commitment

Acle Academy is committed to delivering an exceptional education for its young people. All aspects of our provision need to be of the highest standards. Our expert governance ensures that we will achieve our aspirational vision.

Acle Academy is part of the Wensum Trust family of schools. The overall strategic direction of all schools in the trust is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees (Pen portraits available on Wensum Trust website). Each school however has a Local Governing Body (LGB) which has powers according to the Scheme of Delegation. The Trust operates a system of “Earned Autonomy” i.e. the better the school, the lighter is the touch from the trust. 

The Local Governing Body of Acle Academy has recently been appointed by the trustees. It consists of several of the newer governors who have been responsible, along with the excellent Headteacher and new Leadership Team in ensuring the school is making effective progress to the removal of the school from special measures. In addition the LGB now has two parent governors and a staff governor.
