Governance

St Martin's School is part of the Whinless Down Academy Trust and we support the Trust Board as local governors. We have a joint 'Local Governing Body' with Vale View School. As an academy trust, our articles of association determine our governance structure. Our vision and values determine the aims and objectives that we set for our school.

At local level, we are responsible for the development of the curriculum and ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all our pupils. We achieve this by working with all stakeholders to ensure the delivery of an education that prepares children for life.
