Lorraine Tonks (Principal)
Year 10 Work Experience Placement:
Dear Mrs Tonks,
I am writing this letter to thank you very much for the chance to work with you during my work experience last week.
I really enjoyed my time with you and found the whole week beneficial for me for the next couple of years in my school life.
I especially liked working with the different aged children and learning how to communicate with them.
I also enjoyed the children asking me about my school and questions about topics I have studied, my time with Chetwynd Primary Academy will be very useful to my GCSE studies and it will help me decide what career path to choose.
Please pass on my regards and best wishes to everyone who made my time with you worthwhile, particularly Mr Fry and Miss Corbett whp I was with during most of the time whilst with you.
Once again, many thanks and good wishes to you all.
I just wanted to congratulate you on the wonderful sports day you arranged this morning.
It was so well run. Everyone knew just what they were doing. I can tell that you had put lots of time and effort into the planning for it.
The children were having a great time. I especially loved hearing them cheering on their school mates in the races at the end! It was a great atmosphere.
It was a fabulous morning.
Well done to everyone!
Governance is the process by which any organisation or group organises in order to be able to make decisions. In schools, this includes the governing body, who are responsible for scrutiny of decisions made in school and for driving improvement, and the processes and policies which allows the school to work effectively and appropriately.
As a member school within a multi-academy trust, responsibility for the governance of Chetwynd Primary Academy ultimately derives to the Board of Trustees appointed to the Spencer Academies Trust. In common with all Spencer schools, Chetwynd Primary Academy has a Local Governing Body (LGB), which is technically defined as a committee of the Trust Board.
The powers defining the legal relationship between Chetwynd Primary Academy and The Spencer Academies Trust, together with the delegation of general powers within the trust, are set out in a document called the Scheme of Delegation.
The Scheme of Delegation used at Chetwynd Primary Academy can be found here.
The Trust governor handbook can be found here.
A copy of other Trust governance documents are available here.
