Governors

The Governance of Holy Cross Federation is undertaken in accordance with the Diocese of Ely Multi Academy Trust's (DEMAT) Articles of Association.  This is a recent change and a temporary arrangement.  The Trust Board is currently the responsible body for the Governance of Holy Cross Federation and has appointed two Advisory Board Members to work closely with the Headteacher and the Trustees to focus on improving the quality of education.

The Advisory Board Members are:

Runcton Holme CE Primary and Wormegay CE Primary have worked together for many years. We initially formed a partnership with a shared Headteacher in 2003. The schools kept their own separate governing bodies until January 2012 when we formed the Federation of Holy Cross Schools. Throughout this time, the schools have benefited from sharing expertise, resources, and visits, and this has increased over the years. After careful consideration, the governing body of the Holy Cross Schools decided to join the Diocese of Ely Multi Academy Trust (DEMAT), and this took place in October 2014. Please see below for scheme of delegation.

Model of Governance from February 2021
Given the size of the LGB and the challenge of recruiting local governors, the Trust is adopting a more focused mixed model of governance that involves the Trust Central Team and a small number of local governors.  This mixed model is essential to ensure governance at Runcton Holme and Wormegay is in alignment with the Trust’s Vision and Strategic Plan, and to ensure  all statutory duties are carried out through appropriate checks and balances, as well as making sure effective support and challenge of the Headteacher.
