The governance of Jewell Academy is undertaken through the governance framework of the Aspirations Academies Trust.
Local governance is through Aspirations’ South Coast Regional Board and therefore the Chair of the Regional Board (Martin Post) is the Academy’s Chair of Governors.
The Regional Board operates as part of a broader framework of governance within the Trust and further details of this are available from the following link:
In addition to the formal governance framework, the Academy plans to create a local advisory forum. While it is not part of the governance of the Academy, the forum will provide a means for its members to gain a better understanding of the functioning of the Academy and identify matters they would like to have considered by the Regional Board. The forum will be formed mainly from parents of pupils at the Academy and may be supplemented by members from the wider community, co-opted by the Principal.
