Tottington High School

Academy Council
The Academy Council works very closely with the Headteacher in a positive and highly effective partnership and has a vital role to play in making sure that each of our learners receives the best possible education.

Statutory Information

 

The Academy Council is a group made up of representatives appointed by the Shaw Education Trust, parents, staff members and the local community. Councillors are appointed for a period of four years and conduct a full meeting at least once a term – specialist sub committees meet at regular intervals.

The Academy Councillors, in conjunction with the Headteacher, ensure that the school’s education provision is dynamic through a process of continuous review. The Academy Council is responsible for addressing the special needs of the school in respect of the buildings and equipment and liaising with the Shaw Education Trust on any issues relating to the conduct of the school.

The Academy Councillors, Headteacher and staff work closely together and the school’s achievements are largely a measure of the dedication and competence of the head teacher and the staff with the commitment and support of the Academy Council.
