Governance

2020/21 was another highly successful year for Healing School. We completed our ninth year as an Academy we continue to collaborate with other schools and academies within the region to help improve outcomes for pupils. 

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

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.

As a school within the Multi-Academy Trust, the Trustees of Harbour Learning 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.harbourlearningtrust.com

The Harbour Learning Trust Board is responsible for:

  • The strategic direction of the school
  • Quality assurance of systems, structures and procedures
  • Employing of all staff who work at the school
  • The overall safety and wellbeing of pupils, staff and other stakeholders
  • The Admissions body for the school
  • Ownership of the land and buildings.
