Millennium wins 'Outstanding Governance Award'

The biennial Outstanding Governance Awards took place last week at London’s House of Commons.

The awards, organised by the National Governance Association, have been running since 2007, and celebrate the work of school governors across England.

The four categories included ‘outstanding clerk to a governing board’, ‘outstanding governance in a single school’, ‘outstanding governance in a multi-academy trust or federation’, and ‘outstanding vision and strategy’.

Of the seven schools shortlisted in the single-school category, three – Fairfield Park Lower School in Central Bedfordshire, Sir John Barrow School in Cumbria, and Millennium Primary School in Greenwich – took first place.

Millennium Primary School has gone from bordering on special measures in 2013 to ‘outstanding’ in its 2015 Ofsted inspection, and is key part of the Maritime Academy Trust.
