Anthem Community Council

As part of a multi-academy trust, our school is not restricted to the traditional model of local governance that most people are familiar with. 

Society is changing, and our governance structures need to change with it. Anthem is leading the way by launching a completely new kind of governance across its 16 schools with local views, experiences, and expertise at its heart. 

You can find out more about the strategy on the Anthem website.

The new name for local governing bodies is Anthem Community Councils (ACCs). Members of the ACCs will be known as Anthem Community Council members (ACCMs). 

ACCs will have four delegated areas of responsibility:

  • Community
  • Celebration
  • Send, inclusion and safeguarding.
  • Panels

Each ACC will include Anthem Community Council members who are Champions in key areas such as safeguarding, SEND and inclusion, and climate change.

The current members of our ACC are listed in the attachment below.
