Bourne Abbey Church of England Primary Academy

Striving For Excellence, Caring For All In a Loving And Caring Christian Environment.







        Welcome to the Governance area of Abbey Academies Trust.

        Along with the other Trustees, we work with our Executive Headteacher Mrs. Sarah Moore and individual Heads of School in order that the children within our Multi Academy Trust experience the best possible education and experiences.

        The Trustees shape the strategic vision and ethos of the Trust, monitor and challenge school performance as well as dealing with financial planning and business matters with the aim of continual improvement.  Trustees and local governors have a wide range of experience, skills and expertise, all of which improves the governance within the Trust and our schools.

        All our Trustees and local governors take great pride in providing capable oversight and guidance across all areas. Together we ensure all of our academies provide a safe and enriching environment in which every child can learn, grow and develop to reach their full potential. We also strive to provide a rewarding environment for our staff, to ensure we attract and retain the best people in our profession.

        We are dedicated to raising the aspirations for all children by celebrating their successes and achievements in a safe and caring environment.

        It is our aim to build a financially strong trust and support our academies by providing the resources and assistance they require to succeed. We actively encourage individuality within each academy to reflect the diversity and character of the local community within a Church of England setting.
