Local Advisory Board

Minerva Primary School has a strong Local Advisory Board (LAB) whose role is to work closely with the Head of School and staff to shape the future of the school.

Decisions are made including the setting of priorities to help staff raise academic standards further and determine how the school will best spend its money to achieve its aims. The agreed minutes from our full governors' meetings are available on request from the school reception.

Members come from a range of backgrounds and professions including teaching, the public and business sector. This wealth of experience brings a variety of expertise to ensure Redstart is best placed to achieve its potential.

The governing body welcome enquiries from anyone interested in becoming a LAB member.

Chard school trust leader elected to panel for improving education

Chief Executive Officer and Executive Principal of The Redstart Learning Partnership, Suzanne Flack has been elected to the Headteacher Board for the South West region. Headteacher Boards provide advice and scrutiny for the Regional Schools Commissioner.  Members make recommendations for new multi-academy trusts, new sponsors for multi-academy trusts, and look at improvement plans where schools are not performing as well as they should. Suzanne Flack has led The Redstart Learning Partnership, a multi-academy trust based in Chard, Somerset since 2015.  It currently manages five schools, a mix of small rural and larger town-based schools across south Somerset. Suzanne said:  “It’s vitally important that the views and experiences of all kinds of educational backgrounds are considered when important decisions are being made about our nurseries, primary, secondary, special schools and colleges.  I’m delighted to be elected to the board and will use my background in the primary school sector, particularly with rural schools, to help guide local education policies.” Eric van den Barselaar the Chairman of The Redstart Learning Partnership stated: “Having our Chief Executive involved with the South West Headteacher Board will directly benefit all the schools and children in The Redstart Learning Partnership. The Headteacher Boards have already helped a growing number of academies to share expertise with neighbouring schools and within multi-academy trusts, driving improvement for thousands of pupils.”Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
