Karl Lawton

I joined the Governing Body in October 2016 as a Local Authority Governor. I am the Governor Support Manager at the Local Authority and support all schools’ and academies’ Governing Boards to fulfil their three core functions.  I have been a Primary School Governor for sixteen years and was privileged to be the Chair of Governors for six of these years.

I volunteered to join the Governing Board as I would like to contribute to the Co-op Academy becoming outstanding, by supporting and challenging the Academy team to ensure that every pupil achieves to their full potential in a safe and supportive environment.
