The Brunts Academy is extremely proud to have secured Governor Mark accreditation. Governor Mark is a national award which provides external evaluation of the quality of governance in a school. This is a challenging award. Not only does a governing body need to show that it follows good procedures and fulfils statutory duties, but there is a high value placed on evidence of impact – the difference the governing body makes to a school.
Sometimes governors work hard and make a real difference, but no proper record is ever made of this. Governor Mark helps to sharpen practice as well as create the framework through which governor support and challenge can be shown through real evidence.
The Brunts Academy is extremely appreciative of the leadership, support and challenge our governors provide. This demonstrates that all levels of leadership are united in securing our vision – to open minds, creating opportunities for all to believe in themselves, achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life.
We are proud that the effective work of our governors has been recognised through this award.
