Welcome to Caistor Yarborough Academy


Caistor Yarborough Academy’s governing body is made up of parent, staff and community representatives. They meet regularly to discuss key aspects of Academy business, and their role is to support and challenge the Senior Leadership Team in their aim to provide the best possible educational experience and widest opportunities for our students.​

Governors are always keen to receive feedback, ideas or suggestions from interested parties. There are several ways you can do this: by email to governors@cyac.org.uk; through the Clerk to Governors on 01472 851383; or by having a chat with governors at Academy events such as Open Evenings, Parents’ Evenings etc.

We actively encourage members of our community to be involved with the Academy, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with governors – they’d be delighted to hear from you.​

Membership and Structure

Governors are appointed in accordance with the Academy’s Articles of Association (link above).

There are a number of sub-committees which also meet throughout the year. They discuss and monitor in greater detail specific areas of Academy business, and then feedback to the Full Governing Body. They each have different membership, and a different Chairperson. The three separate sub-committees are:

  • Finance
  • Teaching, Learning, Standards & Outcomes
  • Wellbeing, Behaviour and Safety

​​There are links given above to a number of documents which provide comprehensive information relating to the Academy’s governance.
