The Governing Body has a wide range of responsibilities, including planning the academy's future direction and raising the standards of student achievement through a process of challenge and support. Governors are also accountable to parents and the wider community for the performance of the academy.
The Governing Body comprises a number of different types of Governor, who all bring with them different experiences and skills developed through their life. This diversity adds strength to the work of the Governing Body. All governors undertake their work as volunteers.
The Governing Body is now a single body across New Rickstones Academy and Maltings Academy.
The Governing Body has a number of groups which meet regularly : Quality of Provision and Personnel; Student Well Being and External Relations; Achievement, Outcomes, Teaching and Learning, Assessment and Curriculum.
