Governors

The governing body has a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. 

 

Its responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Setting targets for pupil achievement.
  • Making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based.
  • Appointing staff.
  • Reviewing staff performance and pay.

If you need to contact the chair of governors, Mr Alan Chaffey, for any reason you can do so by calling 01482 825377, sending an email to achaffey@horizonacademytrust.co.uk or posting a letter addressed to Mr Alan Chaffey to Biggin Hill Primary Academy, Biggin Avenue, Hull, HU7 4RL.

Governor Equality Statement

As a school we recognise that a diversity of thought, voices and perspectives is essential to good governance and the effective running of any organisation. We regularly collect diversity information from our governors and, depending on current data, can use this to:

  • target recruitment to address gaps in experience and diversity
  • develop and adapt board practices to ensure full participation
  • prioritise training and awareness-raising in identified areas
  • address potential ‘blind spots’ through seeking wider advice and perspectives on current and upcoming opportunities, challenges and risks

However, we are unable to publish this information as it would mean that individual members of our governing body are identifiable.
