The governors, commonly referred to as the governing body, provide non-executive leadership. Our role is to operate as a board – similar to that of a charity, or the board of directors of a company.
In all matters, the ‘board of governors’ operate at a strategic level, leaving the senior school leaders responsible and accountable for the operational day-to-day running of the school.
Our core functions are
· Setting the vision and strategic direction of school;
· holding the Head of School to account for the school’s educational performance;
· and ensuring our financial resources are well spent.
Although governors are volunteers, we have a vital and demanding role that requires skill and professionalism. It is only right that we are accountable to Ofsted for our effectiveness. In all school inspections, Ofsted judges the effectiveness of a school’s governance based on criteria that directly reflect the board’s three core functions
As our governor partnership with Lutton St Nicholas and Gedney Church End have ceased, we have now set up our own local governing board.
We are in need of more governors, therefore if you are interested please contact the head of school to discuss what this entails
The Current Governing Board is as follows:
Robert Hellen – Chair and SEND
Alayna Bates – Staff Governor
Jessica Burton – Stake Holders
Matthew Fox – Premises and IT
Faye Harrison – Curriculum and Pupil Experience
Jake Perrin – Safeguarding
Paul Singleton – Achievement and Standards
Clerk to the Governors – TBC
