The Governors of the Academy fulfil statutory obligations with regard to the National Curriculum and its assessment, the special educational needs of students, sex education and ensuring a daily act of collective worship for all students. Governors are involved in the approval of Academy policies, monitoring the effectiveness of Academy initiatives and providing a challenge to the Principal.
The Full Board of Governors meet three times a year following the meetings of the Every Child Matters committee.
Governors take an active role in the life of the Academy. Termly visits are arranged so they can see the day to day work of the Academy, but most Governors visit more frequently. The Chair of the sub committee will additionally meet regularly with the appropriate Academy staff to review financial and premises issues as they arise. Governors at Southfields Academy are very much a part of the Academy community.
