Governance Structure

Fakenham Academy joined the Sapientia Education Trust on 1 June 2020. The Board of Trustees of the Sapientia Education Trust is ultimately accountable to the Department for Education for the effective and efficient performance of all the schools within the Trust.

Following a review of governance arrangements across the Trust, Trustees have agreed on changes to the Governance structures which take effect from September 2022.  The overall aim is to further strengthen governance arrangements across the Trust.

Sapientia Education Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees who have statutory responsibility for governance.  Further information about the governance structure is available on the Sapientia Education Trust website. 

Our revised arrangements have explicit aims, one of these being to ensure effective parental/carer input by means of a Parent Focus Group (PFG) at each school. 

This group facilitates communication between the Headteacher and parents and carers and acts as a consultative group.
