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.

  • 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
