REAch2 now has 60 primary schools and is organised into 10 clusters.  You can find a complete list of the clusters on the REAch2 website.  Our school is in Cluster 10.


REAch2 Governance

We have 3 layers of governance in REAch2: local governing bodies which oversee individual schools, cluster boards who oversee each cluster and our Board of Trustees who are ultimately accountable to the Department for Education for the running of the Trust.


All our schools share the same governance structure and you can find information about the trust on the REAch2 website at The page gives details of how the Trust is organised, including the Articles of Association, the Master Funding Agreement and all the documents which relate to how the Trust was founded and how it runs today.  You can also find details of who our trustees are.


Our school, like most schools in the Trust, has a local governing body (LGB).  There are terms of reference, which detail how the LGB should work and what its responsibilities are.  On the REAch2 website, terms of reference are available for all our boards, including the Trust Board.  You can also find documents which show how all the different layers communicate and how responsibility and accountability is distributed.


Governance in our school

The LGB holds meetings during the year in which they help to support the school, its leadership and pupils, whilst challenging to make sure that everyone achieves as much progress as they can and should.


Our school’s LGB is made up of 3 trust-appointed members, who are volunteers, 2 parents, 1 staff and the headteacher.  They can invite other members of staff in to meetings to discuss current issues.  You can find out about our governors here Full Governing Body.  They have to declare that they are working for the school in an open and honest way and so fill in a declarations of interests form annually and declarations of interest is an item on every LGB meeting agenda.


The LGB also works alongside a cluster board where cluster-wide issues are discussed.  The Cluster Board is made up of volunteers, just like an LGB, head teachers and chairs of governors.  There is also a central team with officers and business partners who specialise in providing support in areas such as finance, HR, health and safety, estates and governance.
