Looking to become a Trustee?

The Board of Trustees at The Southwater Infant Academy are looking for additional trustees and are keen to attract the skills and experience of people from our community.

Are you looking for a new challenge?
Are you an individual who would like to give back to your wider community? Perhaps help foster the next generation? Do you enjoy working as team, finding solutions and have an interest in the role of schools in our community? If so then The Southwater Infant Academy need you!

The job of the Board of Trustees is to raise standards of achievements for all children which involves providing a strategic view for the academy, acting as a critical friend and ensuring accountability.  The Head teacher is responsible for the day to day running of the academy but the Trustees work with the Head in making decisions regarding: -

  • How the budget should be spent
  • Appointment of new staff
  • Academy policies
  • Academy targets of achievement
  • Academy self-review and evaluation
  • Provision for children with Special Needs
  • Premises development


Working as a team for the benefit of the academy is very rewarding and our Trustees enjoy their involvement in all aspects of academy life.
