Our Governors

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about our governor’s and read the minutes from governors’ meetings. Our Chairperson, Mr Karl Hoods can be contacted via the main school office.

The main role for governors is to support the Principal and staff – the phrase often used to describe this role is ‘a critical friend’. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of academy life. The two key documents used for this are the Academy Improvement Plan and the Summary Self Evaluation Form (SEF). The AIP sets out our strategic plan for the school, with targets that everyone works towards and the SEF sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements.

Governors also fulfil a range of legal duties including:

  • setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
  • approving the budget
  • monitoring the progress and impact  of the AIP
  • appointing, challenging and supporting the Principal
  • safeguarding duty
  • performance review

The full Governing Body meets once every term. At this meeting, the Principal reports to all governors about learning, progress, staffing, financial and premises matters. There is a small group responsible for financial management who with the Business Manager, keep an eye on school finances between our termly governor meetings. All governors are informed about what happens at these monthly finance meetings.

There are several categories of governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school including from the community, parents and staff. All governors have equal status, however they are appointed.

Minutes of meetings:

Once agreed, copies of the minutes of Governors meetings will be available here

We use Clerks Associates for our Clerking service. All Governors can be contacted through them via email, info@clerksassociates.co.uk or my telephone on 020 8920 3662.
