Local Governing Body

 

St Blasius Shanklin C of E Primary Academy is one of the schools owned and run by the Portsmouth and Winchester Diocesan Academies Trust (PWDAT). The Trust’s registered office is at First Floor, Peninsular House, Wharf Road, Portsmouth, PO2 8HB – telephone number 02392 899658. The Chair of the Trust Board of Directors is the Venerable Peter Leonard.

The Portsmouth and Winchester Diocesan Academies Trust has changed the way in which the academies of St Blasius Shanklin Church of England Primary Academy and St Francis Catholic and Church of England Primary Academy will be governed at a local level. The Trust has a strong desire to work in partnership with parents and members of the local Shanklin and Ventnor communities, to ensure that the academies are truly serving their immediate communities in the best possible ways. 

The existing Local Governing Bodies of each academy have formed a single Local Governing Body who will oversee the work of the two academies together at a local level, supported by the Trust's central team. The Chair of the Local Governing Body is Stephen Corbett.
