Windlesham Village Infant School

The Local Academy Board and TAMAT

(as of 23rd April 2018)

Our Local Academy Board has 10 members and our Deputy Headteacher is “in attendance” at each meeting. We are supported by a Clerk and meet twice a term. Our Business Meeting oversees Finance, Personnel and Premises; our Education Meeting oversees pupil progress, attainment, pupil welfare, well-being and safeguarding.

Fundamentally, school improvement is the heart and the purpose of school governance and everything our Governors do is directed at increasing pupil performance and giving the children the best start in their learning careers.

TAMAT - The Alliance Multi-Academy Trust

In April 2018 we formed The Alliance Multi-Academy Trust, TAMAT, with Connaught Junior School, Crawley Ridge Infant School, Crawley Ridge Junior School and Holy Trinity Primary School.

The Alliance Multi-Academy Trust (TAMAT) brings together local, like-minded schools within collaborative reach to achieve even greater outcomes for every child than would be individually possible. We place learning at the heart of our communities. We pool our resources to deepen and nourish the education of all. We aim to improve the life chances of all our children, by helping them develop wisdom, hope, a sense of community and dignity. Each school’s unique ethos and values, whether secular or faith, are strengths to be celebrated and enrich our Trust. Fundamental to all schools within our alliance is a belief in a child-centred approach to education and a commitment to raising the aspirations, achievements and well-being of every one of our children, our staff and our communities.

Across the Trust, we have begun to share training events, so as to get good value for money when we share quality professional development. All of the schools are using an assessment management tool, so as to track each child’s progress and benchmark that progress with each other. This allows us to share good practice and support each other as we work to ensure that each child makes good progress. This is just one example of many that illustrates how our schools work together.
