Aquinas Advisory Council
The school is an academy within the Aquinas Church of England Education Trust (Aquinas). The responsibility for the oversight and management of all aspects of the Aquinas rests with the Board of Trustees. The day to day management of Aquinas has been delegated by the Trustees to the Chief Executive Officer, Kathy Griffiths. The day to day operation of Bishop Justus C of E School has been delegated to Simon Murphy.
In order to assist Simon Murphy, the Trustees of Aquinas have established Aquinas Advisory Councils (AAC) for each academy including Bishop Justus C of E School. The members of Bishop Justus C of E School AAC are as follows:
Trust appointed Members:
Mr. Robert Cliff - Chair
Mrs. Gill Thompson - Vice Chair
Mrs Liz Carter
Fr. Jeremy Blunden
Mr. Christopher Town
Mr. Terry Hyland
Mrs. Sarah Muzzelle
Ms Suzy Pallett
Mr. Simon Murphy
Mrs Melanie Santamaria
Mrs Veronica Lancaster
The purpose of the AAC is to support, advise and be a critical friend to the Headteacher in raising standards of achievement and progress for all learners.
The AAC does have delegated responsibility in relation to aspects of admissions, appointment of staff, complaints, performance management, permanent exclusions, school inspections, staff grievance and disciplinary. The AAC also has the ability to escalate concerns to the Headteacher, CEO or Trustees.
The AAC members meet at least 3 times a year and certain members will have specific functions as agreed by the AAC and the Headteacher. Members will also forge links with the school and wide community. Notes of the AAC meeting are available on request.
AAC Members’ code of conduct and declaration of business interests support the following principles: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
If you wish to contact the Chair of the AAC or any of its members, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and insert in the subject box ‘for the attention of the clerk to the Aquinas Advisory Council’.
