Academy Governance

Hadleigh High School acquired academy status on the 1st July 2011. For us, the freedom to personalise the curriculum around pupils to keep them engaged with learning was crucial. Schools that do well can get overlooked in funding discussions. Academy status allows us to take the decisions about how we use our funding to support learners. We work closely with a wide range of schools to develop further learning opportunities for our pupils and also attend Local Authority training and events.

The principles of governance are the same in Academies as in maintained schools but the governing body has greater autonomy.

The Governing Body at Hadleigh High School – Academic Year 2015-2016

The Governors are responsible for policy and strategy and the Headteacher is responsible for the day-to- day running of the school and ensuring that the policy and strategy agreed by the Governors is implemented.   In this section of the website you can find out who the governors of our school are.

If you would like to contact the governors, please do so by phoning the school at the number on this website's front page or by emailing the

school.
