REAch2 now has over 55 schools and is organised into 10 regions. Our school is part of Cluster 8.
Schools in the Region:
Kent: Milton Court Academy, Copperfield Academy, Tymberwood Academy
Bexley: Brampton Primary Academy
All of our schools share the same governance structure and you find information about the Trust on the REAch2 website at www.reach2.org.
As part of the REAch2 Trust, detailed information regarding governance can be found on the REAch2 website:
This page gives details of how the Trust is organised including the Articles of Association, the Master Funding Agreement and all the documents which relate to how the Trust was founded and how it runs today. You can also find details of who our Trustees are.
Each cluster is led by a ‘Deputy Director of Education’. At the current time, there is a vacancy for this role in Cluster 8. Challenge and support is currently provided for Kemsley by Gemma Clark (Headteacher at Brampton Primary Academy)
Our school, like all the schools in the Trust, has a local governing body (LGB). There is a scheme of delegation which details how the LGB should work. The LGB hold meetings during the year in which they help to support the school, its leadership and pupils whilst challenging to make sure that everyone achieves as much progress as they should.
The LGB also works alongside a cluster board. The cluster board will sit for the first time in January 2020.
Prior to September 2017, the Governing Body at Kemsley worked for the Federation overseeing the work of both Kemsley and Milton Court and acting in a critical friend capacity to ensure that the children of both schools receive the very best education possible. From September 2017, the Federated Governing Body ceased to be in place due to the restructure of the leadership team resulting in a substantive Head teacher at both Kemsley and Milton Court and no Executive Headteacher.
Our clerk is Mrs T Rose.
