Community Council

Governance of our school

Welcome and Introduction to our Community Council

The Trust governance model recognises that Community Councils are, whilst a full and formal part of the governance structure in line with the Trust’s Articles of Association, wholly advisory bodies who focus on;


○ The ethos and values of the school


○ The ambition, appropriateness and effectiveness of the school’s curriculum for its children


○ The wellbeing of pupils, families and staff


Kings Rise Academy Priorities and Community Council Focuses 2021-2022


Community councillors are a much valued group of volunteers that play a crucial role in our school offering challenging but positive and proactive support to the Principal and Senior Leadership team on behalf of the children and community that the school serves. They know and celebrate the strengths of the community that the school serves alongside holding the highest aspirations and expectations for our pupils.

Community councillors are appointed from current parents, staff and pupils alongside committed individuals from the wider community. Councillors have an interest in the education and wider opportunities offered by the school to all pupils and have some free time to give to supporting the school.
