Our Trustees


Barling Magna Primary Academy is one of four schools in The Brickfields Multi Academy Trust.  Governance is undertaken by a board of trustees, and they have three core functions:

·         Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

·         Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

·         Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

Further information about our trustees can be found on our Trustees page and at https://sites.google.com/brickfields.org/the-brickfields-trust/home.

In addition to the board of Trustees, each school has a Local Curriculum and Standards Committee; details below.

Local Curriculum & Standards Committee

We are a diverse group of individuals who are staff, parents, community members and a trustees from the Brickfields Multi Academy Trust. Together we form the Local Curriculum & Standards Committee.

The aim of Local Curriculum & Standards Committee is to work alongside the school and the board of trustees to support continuous improvement and ensure all children who attend the school can have the best possible start in life. Many of us either have children at the school or have had children attend Barling Magna Primary School. We are therefore passionate to see the school become the best it can be for the benefit of the children and wider community.

As a Local Curriculum & Standards Committee we formally meet at a least three times a year. Our role is not to manage the day-to-day running of the school but rather to both support and provide constructive challenge to the Head of School in a way which promotes improvement. We also play a vital role in feeding back local issues to the trust board.

Modelling the school values is as much relevant to us as it is the staff and children.

It is important that we ensure positive outcomes are being achieved for all children in the school and therefore part of our role is to review how the school is doing on the following key areas:


  Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

  Standards; inc. Attendance and Behaviour

  Stakeholders; Staff, Parents, Pupils;

Each committee member recognises the importance of child welfare and keeping children safe. This therefore remains an important priority for the Local Curriculum & Standards Committee.

Committee members monitoring visits are a vital part of our role and this gives us an opportunity to speak to teaching and non-teaching staff and children. It also enables us to monitor whether the commitments in the School Improvement Plan (the annual plan which the school uses to set priorities for improvement) are being delivered. Members take an interest in different areas across both curriculum and year groups to maintain a detailed, whole school focus.

It is key that we maintain a close connection both with parents, carers and with the wider community. Our role is to ensure that parent and carers’ aspirations for high quality teaching and support for children who attend Barling Magna Primary are being delivered. We therefore remain committed to engage and communicate with parents and carers throughout the year.

As committee members we are committed to working together – with the school, with parents/carers and with the community in helping Barling Magna Primary School be the best it can be for the benefit of the children.

If you are interested in either becoming a committee member or finding out more about what we do please feel free to contact us via the school office; admin@barlingmagna.essex.sch.uk or 01702 218961.
