Avon Valley College is part of a multi-academy trust (MAT) - Salisbury Plain Academies.
All academies in a MAT are governed by one trust and a single Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees is responsible for decisions relating to how each academy is run, from the curriculum to staffing. The MAT will establish an advisory board for each of its academies, to which it can delegate some of its functions. The MAT remains accountable for these functions.

Within Salisbury Plain Academies every school has an Academy Advisory Board made up of representatives from the school, the trust, the parents and the community to respond to the context, needs and resources of its school community and its connections to the wider world.

Academy Advisory Boards

Academy Advisory Boards (AAB) work closely with the Principal of the individual academies to support the development and improvement of teaching, learning and standards within them.  They are the voice of the school and the community, communicating with the Board and the Central Committees, ensuring there are always opportunities to engage, to listen and to and communicate key messages.

The role of an Academy Advisory Board member is voluntary, however, in order for the Academy Advisory Board to function efficiently and effectively, there are allocated responsibilities for AAB members in order to achieve this.  Support and guidance is given in the form of induction and on-going training.

The primary responsibility of the AAB is to support the monitoring and evaluation of the quality and impact of leadership in any given academy. The AAB also contributes to monitoring the extent of community involvement by the academy and considers how the academy ‘reaches out’ to its local community.
