Governance information

The core pillars of the board's role and purpose are strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy, and accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance.

 

The governing board, comprising 2 ex-officio governors (headteacher of the school and vicar of the parish), 1 local authority governor, 1 staff governor, 2 parent governors, 6 foundation governors (2 elected by the Diocesan Board of Education and 4 elected by the Parochial Church Council) and associate members, is co-chaired by Mr Mahesh Gami and Rev Chris Kilgour.

 

Associate members are appointed by the governing body to serve on one or more governing body committee. They may also attend full governing body meetings. They are not governors and therefore do not have a vote in governing body decisions, but may be given a vote on decisions made by committees to which they are appointed.
