Uffculme School and Uffculme Primary School are part of the Uffculme Academy Trust (the Trust), a Multi Academy Trust whose mission is to enable effective collaboration and partnerships that will support outstanding educational experiences for pupils attending each of the Trust’s schools.
The Trust’s mission is underpinned by core beliefs and values that:
- every child has the right to a high quality education where excellence is the norm
- teachers have the right to teach free from disruption and distractions, and
- parents have the right to know that their children are well-cared for, and supported to achieve their best.
The Trust is a company limited by guarantee and an exempt charity. Information about the Trust, its structure and how it works may be found on the Uffculme Academy Trust website.
Local Governing Bodies (LGBs) provide oversight for each of the schools within the Trust. LGBs are made up of Governors who are recruited locally. Their work resembles that of the governing bodies of maintained schools and is set within the vision, values and policies defined by the Trust.
A scheme of delegation sets out the different roles played by the Trust and the LGBs and Terms of Reference describe the work of the LGB as well as the Trust’s Board and Committees.
