On 1st September 2021, Antingham and Southrepps Primary School and Nursery joined Synergy Multi-Academy Trust a local academy trust, comprising three high schools, ten primary schools and an all through primary and secondary school.

Our CEO is Robert Martlew.

Antingham and Southrepps Primary School and Nursery continues to have its own Governing Body which is currently made up of ten Governors and the Head teacher. The Governors are like a board of directors. They work in partnership with the Head teacher to make decisions about how the school is run in order to improve the quality of education and ensure pupil progress.

The Governing Body has a range of duties and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement including setting targets for pupil attainment, monitoring the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, appointing staff, reviewing staff performance and pay and many more.

The full Governing Body meets six times a year to ratify decisions, review progress and to discuss the Head teacher’s report, which covers all aspects of the school’s activities. 

Governors endeavour to visit the school regularly to help monitor the Quality of Education and the day to day running of the school and they also meet with staff and parents and talk to the children. We have an active govering board who attend school performances, take part in school events, provide enrichment opportunities and support with school trips and arranging visitors to come in to the school.  

The school secretary has contact details for the chair of governors and the parent governors.
