Churchfield Primary School is an academy within Waterton Academy Trust. Each school in the Trust has a Academy Standards Committee (ASC) whose powers are defined by WAT in the Scheme of Delegation.
We meet together, each term, ASC (parents may know this as the Governing Body), to discuss various aspects of our school’s management and organisation. Our ASC also establishes working groups to review and develop specific aspects of school policy. Each Governor undertakes a specific area of responsibility related to a particular area of interest or skillset.
Our ethos and vision runs through every aspect of school from the classroom to the ASC, and the groups and works with school to challenge and support leaders, but most importantly ensures that our children have the opportunity to Grow, Achieve & Shine.

Our ASC works tirelessly to ensure that our children have the education that they deserve, and is made up of a range of committed individuals who bring a range of skills and expertise to school.
How We Work
The ASC share school's vision and ethos and work alongside the Headteacher to develop school's strategic direction. The ASC also have a range of skills and knowledge in areas that greatly benefit school, and work in sub-committees to further develop our school. The ASC meet every term, but are also a constant presence in school and contribute to wider school life, such as assemblies, staff training, awards nights and learning walks.
Types of Governor
There are different types of Governor, all with different background, roles and responsibilities. A Community Governor is appointed by the ASC to represent the community, and does not need to have past education experience - but needs to passionate about the development of our community. A Parent Governor is elected onto the ASC by other parents from the school, and are usually parents of children in attendance at the school. A Staff Governor is elected by, and to represent staff.
