Welcome from our Chair of Governors Mr Chris Defraine
'As governors we are charged with the responsibility of overseeing the work of the academy, seeking assurances from the headteacher and senior leaders about financial solvency and probity and about the steps being taken to secure the delivery of the highest quality education for all pupils. We are also the employer of all of the staff on the academy’s pay roll and thus with ensuring that we recruit, develop, retain and manage the highest calibre staff team that we can.
The educational provision at Ling Moor Academy was judged by OfSTED to be ‘Outstanding’ in 2013 – the highest accolade that the regulator awards. Rigorous quality assurance processes, led by the governors, ensure that our improvement priorities are focused on both sustaining this high quality and improving it further.'
