Lawn Manor Academy
Lawn Manor Academy opened on 1st September 2017 having joined Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Trust (RWBAT), which was officially formed on 1st May 2017.
Lawn Manor is situated in the Old Walcot area of Swindon at the foot of the Lawn Woods. Lawn Manor takes its name from the 18th century Tudor Mansion of the Goddard family, as the school sits on the land of the house which was demolished in 1952 after falling into disrepair. The school logo was designed using the shape of the sunken garden on the Lawn Manor Estate.
Lawn Manor, led by Headteacher Sandra Muir, is an all-ability Academy where the emphasis is placed on inclusive education. A developed and rounded curriculum to suit children of all abilities with excellent facilities support this aim. The Headteacher is determined to lead Lawn Manor in making it an excellent school that inspires all students to be the best that they can be. Together with the staff of Lawn Manor, they strive to maximise the potential of each person within our school community and are absolutely committed to continuous improvement through an excellent pastoral care system to support students and the community. We take pride in the individual focus we give each child and how we help them to develop and grow to achieve well and be a good citizen.
Lawn Manor Academy - Local Governing Body
Each Local Governing Body exists to provide a platform of governance designed to enhance the monitoring and improvements in education and pupil attainment at local level whilst delivering the three core principles of:
- clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction in line with RWBAT policy,
- holding the Academy Headteacher to account for the performance and attainment of its pupils,
- overseeing the Academy’s delegated financial budget.
The LGB articulates the needs of its academy community through its regular reporting to RWBAT in line with the operational Scheme of Delegation. The LGB seeks to support RWBAT in wide curriculum collaborations and sharing good practice, which underpins the ways of working and terms of reference for each LGB. LGB Governors details are shown in the Lawn Manor website.
