All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school.  All Saints Academy is part of St. Mary’s Academy Trust, therefore overall responsibility for the Governance of the school lies with the Trust Board of Directors.

All Saints Academy also have a Local Governing Body (LGB) which works closely in partnership with the Headteacher, staff and representatives from St. Mary’s Academy Trust.

The Headteacher, Mrs Catherine Green, is responsible for the day to day running of the school. However, she works closely with governors who make an essential contribution to the life of the school.  They work together to provide the strategic direction for the school.  It ensures that school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives. A key role of the Local Governing Body is to act as a ‘critical friend’, to support, to challenge, to ask questions, and through this work, to represent the school community.

Our Local Governing Body are:

Mrs Sharon Cook ​​–​Chair of Governors

Mrs Melanie Priestley- Trust CEO

Mrs Catherine Green​​–​Headteacher

Mrs Susan Richmond​​– ​Trust Governor

Rev Fiona Kouble ​– Trust Governor
