Cadmus Structure

How is Cadmus Different?

Although we are a federation and as such are a group of schools with a single governing body, our unique structure ensures that each school remains autonomous.
Each school has a local governing committee composed of representatives from parents, the local community and staff of each school as well as local authority governors and co-opted Governors.

All strategic and financial decisions are delegated to the local governing committees so each school within Cadmus Family of Schools retains its own individuality and autonomy. Power is held locally with each school, not centrally.

All Governors are Cadmus Governors.


What Ofsted Says About Us

The federation has also provided effective support to develop the quality of teaching through staff training, moderation and the opportunity for leaders to learn from the best practice in other schools.

“Leaders and staff know the community well and provide particularly good support for vulnerable pupils.”

“The school has recently joined the Cadmus Federation with four other local primary schools and, as a result, the schools work collaboratively to share resources and the expertise of skilled staff.”
