Give seedlings and plants a nitrogen boost by stirring leftover coffee grounds into the soil or also can mix it into your watering can. It acts as a plant's CPR! Leftover coffee grounds can also be used in vegetable garden for fertilizer and to repel insects.

Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

Across England, there are over 300,000 school/academy Governors, who form the largest volunteer force in the country.

Members of Chobham Academy’s Governing Body work collectively to perform a strategic role and carry out key functions such as:

  • Discuss and set the aims and objectives for the Academy.
  • Set the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Set the required targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress that the Academy is making towards its set aims and objectives. A separate Finance and General Purposes committee meets termly, reporting to the Full Governing Body, its role is to ensure financial compliance and good value for money as well as keep an oversight of buildings and human resources. 
  • Finally the role of role of the Academy Governor is to be a source of challenge and support to the Principal, i.e. a 'critical friend’.

We're fortunate to have an active Governing Body, who take a strategic role in ensuring the Academy provides the best possible provision for our learners.
