Governance at The Orme Academy

Shaw Education Trust operates two models of local governance, The Orme Academy operates under SET & Local Board terms.

Matters related to education, standards and performance are undertaken through the Progress Board.

Matters related to operational issues are undertaken through the Team Around the School Meeting.

We meet our duty to engage and consult with parents through local governance through the Local Advisory Board.

The Chair of the Progress Board and Team Around the School is Lee Barber who can be contacted via Beth Barlow at

The Chair of the Local Advisory Board is Claire Woolley.

We continually work to develop a culture of diversity, equality and inclusion, in which all those connected to Shaw  Education  Trust  feel  proud  of  their  identity and ability to participate fully in school life. In our current structure, governance roles at our academy are composed of approximately 100% white British and 0% minority ethnic background*. Please note that councillors are able to opt out of sharing this information so percentages can only be seen as an approximation.

(*The DfE as one of their metrics, suggest that for data collection purposes, any individual who is of any origin other than white British, is defined as being of minority ethnic background.)”
