    Governors

    The governors are responsible for the three core strategic functions:

    1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

    2. Holding the Principal to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and the performance management of staff.

    3. Overseeing the financial performance of the Academy and making sure the money is well spent.

    The Governors have responsibility for the overall conduct, ethos and organisation of the College. They are responsible for the oversight and implementation of the College Curriculum which in turn must meet National guidelines. They can and do delegate a range of responsibilities to the Principal. The full Governing board meets once formally per term. In addition to these minimum requirements, the Governors in rotation consider specific aspects of College organisation and report back to the full body. They are involved in three committees which are:

    • Staffing, Pastoral & Pay Committee
    • Educational Standards Committee
    • Finance, Audit & Risk Management Committee
    • Health & Safety Sub Committee

    The Finance and Health & Safety committees meet once per term, the Staffing and Pastoral twice per year and the Educational Standards three times per year. These committees in turn report back to the full Governing Board. Governors are also nominally attached through their expressed interests, to College faculties in order to maintain close and supportive working relationships.

     

    The current Chairman of the Governing board is Mr Carl Bond and the Vice Chairman is Mrs Irene Jones although these posts are annually elected by members of the Governing board.
