The Regional Board operates as part of a broader framework of governance within the Trust and further details of this are available from the following link: https://www.aspirationsacademies.org/about-us/governance/governance-system/

In addition to the formal governance framework, the academy runs a Parent Forum to promote strong links with parents, carers and the local community.   While it is not part of the governance of the academy, the Forum provides a means for its members to gain a better understanding of the functioning of the academy and identify matters they would like to have considered by the Regional Board.
