The Regional Board operates as part of a broader framework of governance within the Trust and further details of this are available from the following link:
In addition to the formal governance framework, the Academy has an Ocean Community forum to promote strong links with parents and the local community. While it is not part of the governance of the Academy, the Ocean Community forum provides a means for its members to gain a better understanding of the functioning of the Academy and identify matters they would like to have considered by the Regional Board.
