Governance

The governors collectively provide a challenge and support function to the Headteacher and the Leadership Team.

The setting of rigorous and clear targets, and the frequent detailed monitoring and questioning of progress, is fundamental to providing the educational aspirations that Kennington Park Academy desires for all its students.

The Academy Council of an academy or Free School is responsible for ensuring that it is run to promote excellent pupil outcomes. Its duties include:

  • Holding the Headteacher to account as a "critical friend"
  • Supporting the Headteacher
  • Agree policies delegated to this Council
  • Making visits to the school to meet staff and pupils
  • Monitoring the spend of the delegated budget, including Pupil Premium
