Governing Board

The Primary Advantage Federation has a formal Governing Board with representatives from all eight schools. Each school has a Local Advisory Board that meets at least four times a year and supports the Headteacher and Executive Principal in making strategic decisions that will improve outcomes for pupils. Each Local Advisory board reports to the Central Governing Board once a term. Our Local Advisory Board includes representatives from our parents, staff and community.

The Local Advisory Board meet regularly to support and challenge the school to continue to provide children with a high quality education.  They look at outcomes for all pupils at Springfield and look at  how well our children are doing compared to children nationally.  They also receive finance reports, health and safety reports, curriculum reports and help the school to make decisions that will benefit our school community.
