Our Governing Body

Hadley Learning Community has a Federated Governing Body which is responsible for our all-through school and has representatives from across the organisation as well as Governors from a range of different professions. All Governors have completed a skills audit and we ensure that when new Governors are appointed they can bring additional skills and expertise to the Governing Body. In October 2014 we reconstituted the Governing Body in line with the new DfE regulations and it has again been remodeled for our transition to academy status. There are now 14 Governors of which 1 is a Trust Appointed Governor, 4 Parent Governors (2 primary, 2 secondary), 2 staff Governors (1 primary, 1 secondary and 8 Co-opted Governors which include the Principal and Head of Primary.
The inspirational principal works in close partnership with the headteacher and senior team who share his vision for the school that focuses strongly on promoting students’ achievement and well-being.Ofsted

Register of Governor Business Interests

From 1 September 2015, governing bodies will be under a duty to publish on their website their register of interests. The register should set out the relevant business interests of governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern. The register should also set out any relationships between governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives. ‘None’ should be the recorded entry on the register by governors who have no interests to register.
