Local Governing Body
Saltley Academy is a member of the Washwood Heath Multi Academy Trust.
As such, many responsibilities of governance are held by the Board of the Trust. The role of the Academy Advisory Board “AAB” (formerly known as the Local Governing Body), is to focus on the leadership of the Academy, and in particular the quality of education and students’ personal development. Please see the ‘Scheme of Delegation’ for more details of this via the Trust website’s governance section.
From the academic year 2019-20, Saltley shares an Academy Advisory Board “AAB” with one of our partner academies within the Trust, Tile Cross Academy. This new Board met for the first time on 1st October 2019. The minutes for the previous AAB of Tile Cross are below.
The AAB meets three times per year. There are two sub-committees of the AAB.
One has a focus on:
- the quality of education;
- student attendance and punctuality;
- our provision for personal development (including our commitment as a Rights Respecting School; Spiritual, Social, Moral and Cultural Development; Relationship and Sex Education).
The other sub-committee focuses on:
- our provision for SEND students;
- our provision for looked after students and students eligible for ‘pupil premium’ funding;
- the well-being of our staff;
- health and safety.
Sub-committees meet at the start of each half-term (from November onwards, so meeting 5 times per year). They report back to the full AAB.
The AAB as a whole takes responsibility for overseeing the strategic engagement with stakeholders and the community.
The membership of the joint AAB is:
WHMAT Board link and community Governor: Mr Dan Turnbull
Vice Chair and Community Governor: Mr Bhupendra Tailor
