Anthem Community Council roles within the Academy

The Role of 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.

    ACC members can be contacted via the main school address. You can find this on the Contact page of this website. If you wish to contact Chris Scrivener, Chair of the ACC, you can do so via the following email address:
    A summary table of members’ interests and meeting attendance for the last full academic year can be found on here: Register Of Local Governors 2022 2023
