  • Set the required targets for achieving those aims and objectives.

Monitor and evaluate the progress that the Academy is making towards it’s set aims and objectives.

Finally the role of role of the Academy Governor is to be a source of challenge and support to the Principal, i.e. a 'critical friend.' Governors drive and monitor the progress towards the Academy Improvement Plan, a copy of which is included in the documents list for this page.
