Chepping View Primary Academy Committee



Inspiring Futures Partnership Trust (IFPT) Board have established an “Academy Committee” for Chepping View Primary Academy. The overarching purpose of an Academy Committee is to support and provide effective challenge around the strategic direction and performance of the relevant academy within the framework and parameters set by the Trust Board. Those serving on an Academy Committee are accountable to the Trust Board and must ensure that at all times they act in good faith and in the best interests of the academies and the Trust, exercising reasonable care and skill having particular regard to the personal knowledge and experience. The role and responsibilities of the Academy Committee is detailed in the Academy Committee Terms of Reference.

An Academy Committee’s core duties are:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Effective challenge of the principal for the educational performance of the academy and its pupils
  • Effective review and challenge of the financial performance of the academy to ensure that its money is well spent.


The diagram below highlights where the Academy Committee sits within IFPT’s governance structure.

Our two children completed their primary school education at CVPA and are now enjoying secondary education at local Grammar schools. I have been a Trustee since 2016.

Cllr. Lesley Clarke O.B.E.

Contact: lclarke@cvpa.school


I was first elected as a Councillor in 1991 and have been a member of Wycombe District Council, Buckinghamshire County Council and now the new Buckinghamshire Unitary Council, representing the same area for all that.

I have held many positions in my time as a Councillor, from Committee Chairman to Leader and Chairman of Council. I had the honour of being Mayor of the town of High Wycombe in 1994/5 and Deputy Mayor 2021/22. So, a very varied, interesting and exciting career as a Councillor which culminated in my being awarded the order of the British Empire (OBE) in the Queen's Birthday Honours in May 2013. In 2021, I was invited to become a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA). I am a Charter Trustee for the unparished area of the town of High Wycombe.

I am involved in my community as a school governor, in local charities, the local neighbourhood forum, resident's association and the local community board.

I am married; we have three daughters and four grandchildren. In my spare time, which is somewhat limited, I enjoy reading, cooking and travelling with my husband.
