Academy Committee - began spring 2022
The governance of our school is conducted via The First Federation Trust (see below). We also have a local academy committee. This is made up of two elected staff representatives, two elected parent representatives, up to two community members, and the head of school. The group meet once per half term, discuss the school improvement work and matters arising and has the following members:
Ida Missen (appointed by parents on 16/11/2020 for four years):
I am one of the two parent council members at Brixington Primary Academy and also have two children at the school. I am very pleased to be a part of the Academy Committee and to be able to help the school by providing a parent’s perspective.
Amanda Sangha (appointed by parents on 16/11/2020 for four years):
I'm one of the two parent council members for Brixington. I have two children in the school (Year 1 and Year 6) and have been a parent council member since November 2020.
Laura Piper (elected by support staff on 14/01/2022 for four years):
I am one of the staff representatives. My role at the school is Family Support Worker, and the Academy Committee gives me an opportunity to consider whole-school actions and their implications for the people who work at school.
Emily Wheeler (elected by teachers on 14/01/2022 for four years):
I have worked at Brixington since 2018. The Academy Committee is something I'm proud of because I can be a positive and proactive voice for the ideas and thoughts of the staff at Brixington. To me, it is important that parents, governors and teaching staff have their voice heard to steer the school in the direction that makes for a positive and joyful place to be.
