Castlecombe Primary School is part of The Spring Partnership Trust, alongside St Mary Cray Primary Academy, Hayes Primary School, Dorset Road Infant School, Midfield Primary School and Leesons Primary School. The Spring Partnership Trust Board sets the strategic direction of the Trust and oversees the Finance and Resources Committee (FARCO), which is responsible for the finances and resources of all the schools in the Trust, and the Achievement and Curriculum Committee (ACC) which monitors the progress and attainment of all pupils.
Further information on the responsibilities of the Trust Board and its committees can be found by following this link to the Spring Partnership Site.
Each school within the Trust has a Local Advisory Council (LAC). The primary focus of LACs is the pupils within their school and the wider Trust; in particular their welfare, progress and attainment. They provide assurance that the school is delivering its full prospectus effectively to all pupils. They do this by:
• advising the Headteacher and, as necessary, the CEO and Trustees on the needs and views of their school community (including pupils, parents, staff and the wider local community).
• supporting their school and other schools in the Trust through promotion of the Trust’s values and priorities within the school and its wider community
Although Local Advisory Councils do not have legal responsibilities, they are a crucial channel of communication with headteachers, the wider school community, the CEO and Trustees
The LACs are made up of representatives from the school community, including parents, staff, and the local community. They meet at least once a term.
The Headteacher and the Trust are responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the Trust Board.
Any letters for the attention of the LAC should be addressed to the Clerk to the Local Advisory Council, Castlecombe Primary School, Castlecombe Road, Mottingham, London, SE9 4AT. To send an email please click on this link Clerk to the Local Advisory Council
