Compass Primary Academy is part of the Brooke Weston Trust. Brooke Weston Trust is governed by the Board of Directors who are ultimately responsible for holding the Executive Team to account. At Brooke Weston Trust we place great significance of the importance of governance in raising school standards and ensuring effectiveness in the running of our academies.

The Board of Directors delegate responsibilities to specific committees in order to aid them in carrying out their function.
