The governing body meets once each academic term. The governing body establishes an overall framework for the governance of the academy and agrees membership of committees. Governing body committees consist of Finance, Personnel and Audit Committee, Teaching and Learning Committee and Facilities Committee. The governing body receives reports and in particular policy documents from its committees for ratification. It monitors the activities of the committees through the minutes of their meetings and establishes committee terms of reference. 

The governing body is responsible for setting general policy, adopting an annual plan and budget, monitoring the academy budgets and making major decisions about the direction of the academy, capital expenditure and senior staff appointments.

DT Week

In the penultimate week of our term, we focused all of our work around an extended DT project Using funding from Rolls Royce, each year group was set the challenge of designing and making a different type of car: Reception and year 1 had to make cars using a cardboard chassis; Years 2 to 4 had to build their own frames out of wood and transport different objects; year 5 had to create a car that ran with a motor and a switch; and Year 6 designed and built their own Go Karts for children in school to play on. It was a brilliant week and we have been blown away by the children's creations!

Animals, Animals and more animals!

Redhill has been like a mini zoo this term with all of the animals we have had in school! Year 5 have hatched some eggs and raised the chicks for the first two weeks of their lives; Reception have had a new guinea pig as a class pet which they have named Rice Crispie; The Duckligs have also held a special Pet Afternoon where they all brough their pets to school, including a shetand pony; and Year 1 and 3 had a mobile zoo visit which brought animals such as skunks, meerkats, snakes, spiders and cockroaches for them to play with! It's been a wonderful, animal-filled term!

Caribbean Day

For their Enterprise Day, the Year 2s held a fantastic Caribbean day in school for the parents to attend. They performed an amazing assembly inspired by Caribbean stories, ate lots of delicious Caribbean food and shared their incredible Caribbean art. It was a brilliant day!
