Governors

The Governors of Dorrington Academy volunteer to ensure that we provide the best provision for the pupils of Dorrington. The Governing Body include the Headteacher, teaching staff, parents, local authority appointees and members of the community.

The Governing Body meets as a whole every term unless an extra meeting is required to address urgent business. The Governing Body delegates responsibility to a series of committees which conduct the business of the Governing Body.

All the committees and monitoring groups assist the Headteacher to carry out statutory obligations and support in leading and managing Dorrington Academy to achieve its vision. Without doubt the Governing Body of Dorrington Academy are committed to being accountable. They have a passion for ensuring they keep themselves not only updated with current legislation and initiatives, but make the time to be in school supporting and monitoring achievement.

Governors can be contacted through the school.
