  • monitoring the quality of teaching and learning, attendance, behaviour and safety, within the academy and progress against the academy improvement plan
  • holding school leaders to account for improvement of standards in the school
  • engaging with wider academy activities as a means of monitoring overall quality
  • ensuring compliance with the Trusts policy for Safeguarding and that the Academy maintains a ‘culture of vigilance in respect of all safeguarding matters.
