THE ACADEMY TRUST AND THE LOCAL GOVERNING BODY

Sir Henry Fermor CE Primary School is an academy in the Tenax Schools Trust. An academy is a state-funded, independent school. The Tenax Schools Trust is a Church of England ‘multi academy trust’.

The ‘members’ of the Tenax Schools Trust are the Bishop of Rochester, the Rural Dean of Tunbridge Wells and the Archdeacon of Tonbridge. These ‘members’ appoint the board of trustees (or directors) which governs the Tenax Schools Trust as a whole, including taking responsibility for its financial health and overall accountability for its educational outcomes.

For matters pertaining specifically to Sir Henry Fermor as an individual school, the trustees appoint a ‘local governing body’ which is specific to Sir Henry Fermor. As well as local governors appointed by the trustees, Sir Henry Fermor’s Local Governing Body also includes an elected staff governor, two elected parent governors, and the headteacher of Sir Henry Fermor.
