Weavers Academy

Staff List - Governors

Our aspiration is for Governance at Weavers Academy to be truly outstanding and a model of best practice.  This means working with academy leaders to secure rapid improvements in the provision and outcomes for all students, especially the most disadvantaged. The support and challenge required will be through a Rapid Improvement Board (RIB) which was formed in January 2016. This will be the local governance model until further notice.
