King’s Academy Gomer is a King’s Group Academies. The Governors of the school, are delegated powers, by the Trust Board to oversee governance at a local level, on behalf of the main Trust Board.

The Chair of Governors is Mrs Sue McAdam (contactable through the school office).

Our Governors aim to work in conjunction with parents/carers, staff and other stakeholders of both schools to exercise a local form of governance that is responsive and reflects the voice of the community we serve. The Local Governing Body is a team of people who work closely with the Executive Headteacher to make key decisions to enable the successful running of the school and ensure that it delivers high-quality education.

All boards, no matter what type of school or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding senior school leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff;
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.
