MillbrookPrimary School

"Believe Achieve Succeed"


Parent Elections - March 2022

Millbrook Primary School converted to academy status as part of the Vale Academy Trust on December 1st 2014.


Upon conversion, the Local Governing Body (LGB) was established to lead the strategic direction of the school. The LGB works closely with the Directors of the Vale Academy Trust.


Governors are volunteers who work in partnership with the headteacher and senior leaders to ensure that children receive the best education possible.


The governing body has a range of duties and powers, and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. This includes setting targets for pupil achievement, managing the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced, appointing staff, reviewing staff performance and pay and deciding how, in strategic terms, the school should be run.


The LGB meets at least five times a year, and focuses on the progress the school is making towards its objectives and supports and challenges  the senior leaders as they drive the school forwards.


Governors take their responsibilities very seriously and, in addition to any professional skills they may have, they also attend training courses run by the Vale Academy Trust. These sessions cover a wide range of topics such as Pupil Data, Safer Recruitment, Effective HR and Special Educational Needs. The Clerk to the Governors acts as an adviser and provides professional support to the governors.
