Governance

2016/17 was another highly successful year for Healing School. We completed our seventh year as an Academy and our Teaching School (The Humber Teaching School) continues to work with over 50 schools and academies to help improve outcomes for pupils. The addition of our new teaching block, which is now an integral part of Healing School, allowed for the enhancement of our provision for drama last year. As a result of this improved facility, two of our old classrooms were opened out to provide a large dedicated drama room. Improvements to the underlying school infrastructure have also continued.

None of these achievements would be possible without the on-going support and commitment of the Governors and Staff.

My fellow governors and I on the Local Governing Body of Healing School, are committed to providing you, and all our stakeholders, with a comprehensive range of information about the school. I trust that you will find all that you require on our website and in our detailed school prospectus.

As a school within the Multi-Academy Trust, the Trustees of Healing Multi-Academy Trust have to prepare an Annual Report and audited Financial Statements and hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM). The proceedings of the AGM will be published on our website at the end of the calendar year. Copies of our audited ‘Report and Financial Statements’ can be found on the multi-academy trust website www.healingmultiacademytrust.co.uk

The Healing Multi-Academy Trust Board is responsible for:

  • Employing of all staff who work at the school.
  • The Admissions body for the school.
  • Ownership of the land and buildings.
