Governing Body


REAch2 now has over 55 schools and is organised into 4 regions.

 Our school is part of the East Anglia Region

Schools in this region are:-


Camulos Primary Academy; Unity Primary Academy

Clacton-on -Sea

Kirby Primary Academy; Burrsville Infant Academy;

Sir Martin Frobisher Academy


Beccles Primary Academy


Gunton Primary Academy; St Margaret’s Primary Academy;

Phoenix St Peter Primary Academy; Northfield St Nicholas

Primary Academy


Martlesham Primary Academy; Sprites Primary Academy

All our schools share the same governance structure and you can find information about the trust on the REAch2 website at http://reach2.org/ . The Governance page gives details of how the Trust is organised, including the Articles of Association, the Master Funding Agreement and all the documents which relate to how the Trust was founded and how it runs today.  You can also find details of who our trustees are.

Our school, like all the schools in the Trust, has a local governing body (LGB). There is a scheme of delegation, which details how the LGB should work.  The LGB hold meetings during the year in which they help to support the school, its leadership and pupils whilst challenging to make sure that everyone achieves as much progress as they should.

 Our school’s LGB is made up of 3 trust-appointed members, who are volunteers, one parent, three staff and the headteacher. They can invite other members of staff in to meetings to discuss current issues. The governors have to declare that they are working for the school in an open and honest way and so fill in a Register of Interests and record of attendance.

The full Governing Body meets at least once per term, with smaller committees convened when required.

The governing body can be contacted in writing and passed to the school office, for the attention of Mr N Taylor or Mr Phlip Freeman.

Please see below for the members of our Governing Body:- 

Trust Appointed - Mr N Taylor - Vice Chair of Governors

Trust Appointed - Mrs L Dickson - Consultant Headteacher

Trust Appointed - Mr J Sly 

Staff Governor – Mr D Girdlestone

Parent Governor - Mrs L Hogarth

Staff Governor – Ms G Bright

Staff Governor – Mrs H Hill

Clerk - Mr Philip Freeman

 The LGB also works alongside a regional board where region-wide issues are discussed. The Regional Board is made up of volunteers, just like an LGB, with head teachers and chairs of governors.  There is also a team of regional officers, led by the Regional Director, Mr Simon Wood.  They provide support to the schools in finance, HR, estates and governance.
