Shiphay Standards Board

Mark Tucker

(Co-opted Governor)

Mark Tucker

As a parent of 3 children that have attended the school, I was privileged to join the Shiphay Learning Academy family as a governor in 2009 and became Chair of Governors in 2016. This has given me the opportunity to see first hand how devoted the team are at Shiphay to ensure that all children have the best possible start to their educational journey. As a team of Governors, our role is to support and be a critical friend to enable the school to continue to grow. I have worked in public sector finance all my career and am currently Head of income at Torbay Hospital. In my spare time, I enjoy playing and watching most sports, especially football and golf.

Welcome to  our Governors' section

 

The Local Standards Board (LSB) is responsible for monitoring standards and school improvement at Shiphay Learning Academy.  They hold school leaders to account and report back to the trustees of Riviera Education Trust.
The LSB meet at least three times throughout the school year and governors will often spend time in school to monitor school improvement and standards at a local level.
"Governors are part of the overall system of school accountability. They have a vital role to play in driving up school and pupil performance and ensuring every child receives the best possible education."
