shutterstock_144338089 (Large)On 1st July 2017, Gresham Village School and Nursery joined North Norfolk Academy Trust, a small academy trust, comprising two high schools, Sheringham and Stalham, and three primaries, Antingham and Southrepps, Cromer Junior and Gresham Village. Our headteacher is also headteacher at Antingham and Southrepps.

North Norfolk Academy Trust is made up of an Executive Board who make the main strategic decisions about the management and development of the schools within the Trust.

Gresham Village Primary School continues to have its own Governing Body which is currently made up of nine Governors. The Governors are like a board of directors. They work in partnership with the Head teacher to make decisions about how the school is run in order to improve the quality of education and ensure pupil progress.

The Governing Body has a range of duties and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement including setting targets for pupil attainment, monitoring the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, appointing staff, reviewing staff performance and pay and many more.

The full Governing Body meets four times a year to ratify decisions, review progress and to discuss the Head teacher’s report, which covers all aspects of the school’s activities. They also meet as committees to discuss matters relating to the buildings, finance, personnel, and the curriculum.

Governors endeavour to visit the school regularly to discuss matters with staff and parents and to meet the children. The school secretary has contact details for the chair of governors and the parent governors.
