Our Local Academy Governance Committee 

What's their role? 

The academy governance committee of Trinity C.E. Primary School consists of many members with a variety of backgrounds, skills and expertise in order to act as a critical friend for the staff at the school. They hold a vitally important role of supporting and challenging the school in equal measure to ensure that the school continues to provide the very best education that is possible. As the monitoring of curriculum specific provision is the role of our Academy Improvement Officer, the Academy Givernance Committee focus on ensuring that our school is compliant in its approaches in areas such as safeguarding, GDPR and SIAMS. This is in addition to ensuring the school is well placed in the local community. 

What is the structure of the board? 

Our governors meet 6 times a year as a full governing body. The initial meeting is usually within the first two weeks of the academic year and the main focus of this is to agree individual responsibilities for the year ahead and have an initial look at the school priorities for the year. The remaining meetings are scheduled for one in each term over the year.

Mrs Carolyn Brawn

Church Governor

I am Carolyn Brawn and I'm proud to serve as Foundation Governor at Trinity Primary school. I was appointed by Peterborough Diocese as a Governor in December 2013, serve on the Standards committee, was vice-chair for two years and chair for two years. I attended Aldwincle Primary school when in the old building and have lived in the area until our move, on retirement, to Stanwick in 2013.

I trained as a Science teacher with further post-graduate studies in Education. My experience as a teacher, deputy head and later as a consultant for an Awarding Body is extremely valuable in providing critical support to the development of the school. I am passionate that all members of the school community should have the opportunity to achieve the best outcome possible.

Trinity Primary School has a strong Christian ethos which I actively support in my role as Reader. The school's values are embedded in all of school life and I will continue to encourage all of the school community to be active in their implementation.

Mrs Sandra Turland

Clerk to Governor's

Appointed Independent Clerk to the school's Governing Body on 1st September 2015.

I worked for the Northamptonshire Local Authority for 23 years before retiring in 2006 from full time employment. During this time I was PA to both the Director and Deputy Director of Education.  In addition to this I was a Local Authority Clerk for 13 years, when Governor Services Clerking Service was in operation.

I have a NVQ 4 in Management and I am also an accredited assessor. As well as being a member of the Institute of Management, in 2009 - 2011  I was the East Midlands National Governors Association (NGA) Clerk of the Year. I achieved the ISCG Accredited Clerk (with Merit) Award in 2013 as a Clerk to Governance Bodies in Education. I have mentored a number of new clerks and set them strict targets to meet, as indeed I do for myself.  Having received praise from a number of HMI Inspectors for the way I produce minutes and documentation I feel that I am in a good position to help any school move forward in its aim to become Outstanding.
