Our School


Each academy in Northern Star Academies Trust has a local governing body which works on behalf of the Trustees to exercise leadership in the running of the individual academy and holds the Head of Academy and staff to account. It is responsible for promoting high standards and strives to ensure that young people are attending a successful academy which provides them with a good education and supports their well-being.

The functions of New Park Primary Academy's Local Governing Body are:

  • helping the Headteacher and senior leadership team to set high standards by planning for the school´s future and setting performance targets for the school;
  • monitoring the effectiveness of the school provision;
  • the management of risks against the school´s risk register;
  • acting as a critical friend to the Headteacher and senior leadership team, offering support and advice;
  • helping the school respond to the needs of parents and the community;
  • helping make the school be open and accountable to the public for what it does;
  • working with the school on planning and developing policies and keeping the school provision under review; and
  • exercising the responsibilities and powers delegated to it by the Trustees in partnership with the Headteacher and staff.
