Governance at Simpson Avenue Academy is led by a federated Local Advisory Board (LAB) which we share with Hardingstone Academy.

The local advisory board consists of 10 people who are the school governors and are responsible for monitoring standards and performance, inclusion, community engagement and safeguarding.

The federated local advisory board has oversight of both schools as this model is the best fit and highly effective under the executive headship structure.
