Governance Arrangements 2022-23

Following reviews in 2020 and 2021, the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership has implemented a new model for local school oversight. Defined academy representative roles known as Advocates (formerly known as governor’s) collaborate with school leaders and Trustees to enhance the strategic priorities of individual schools and the Trust as a whole. 

The structure reflects the Trust and its school’s single shared vision, a single Board of trustees and a single scheme of delegation. The governance structure is designed to reflect the overall legal responsibility of the Trust Board, and the direct link between individual school representation to both individual school and trustees.

Greysbrooke Primary School is still seeking people to work with us in the below Advocate roles. 

  • Safeguarding 
  • Community

We are looking for people who are excited to help us deliver the very best for our children, their families and our community. Advocates will be appointed for a term of 4 years and work closely with the school leadership to advance the opportunities for students and their schools, and help ensure the school is as strong as it can be. The roles require a time commitment of approximately 30-40 hours per year, broken down into meeting attendance, preparation, email/telephone communications and training.
