William Byrd Primary Academy


All academies in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing the strategic decisions and strategic framework within which the school operates. Their key role is to support, to challenge, and to ask questions. 

Members of the Governing Body include staff, parents and representatives from the local community. They work in close partnership with the Head Teacher, staff and the parents to ensure the school is operating effectively and maintaining an appropriate range of academic and social objectives.  

Governors are involved with setting targets and promoting high standards of educational achievement, management of the school's budget, and ensuring that the curriculum for the school is broad and balanced.

William Byrd Primary Academy is part of the Middlesex Learning Partnership trust and full information on governance can be found on the MLP website.
