Governors

The Governing Body of East Herrington Primary Academy exists to support and advise the Headteacher and her team in running the School for the benefit of the education and enjoyment of its pupils, to provide a productive and creative workplace for its staff and a happy and healthy environment for all.

Governors are drawn from across the local community with differing expertise and experiences with many being parents of children at the School.  This creates a broad level of knowledge which is drawn down and used to enhance the School’s progress wherever possible.

The role of governors is to ensure the strategic direction and performance of the school continues to reflect the high standards we have set ourselves.  All governors have a responsibility to ensure that EHPA continues to deliver the high educational standards the Headteacher and her team have achieved, supporting her as the school continues to evolve into a leading primary academy in Sunderland.

The Balmoral Learning Trust governance structure is currently changing as we move to a multi-academy trust with more than one school and will be updated as new schools join.
