Our Governance

The governance of Magna Academy is undertaken through the governance framework of the Aspirations Academies Trust.
 
Local governance is through Aspirations' South Coast Regional Board and therefore the Chair of the Regional Board, Kate Redman is the Academy's Chair of Governors.
 
The members of the South Coast Regional Board are detailed below.
 
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:

In addition to the formal governance framework, the Academy has a Parent Forum, to promote strong links with parents and the local community. While it is not part of the governance of the Academy, the Parent 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.
