THE ROLE OF THE GOVERNORS
Each school in The Charter Schools Educational Trust has a local governing body (LGB) composed of a group of volunteers drawn from the wider community, each bringing a range of skills, expertise and experience. Our governors provide links between the school, parents/carers, the local community and the Trust Board, which is ultimately responsible to the Department of Education for the performance of all its schools.
Governors’ responsibilities are to:
- think and work strategically to help raise standards
- monitor and evaluate progress
- ensure that the budget is managed effectively
- support the head and staff, and hold the senior leadership to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
The day-to-day running of the school remains the responsibility of the senior leadership team (the co-headteachers, Mr Hammill and Ms Nowakowska, and the deputy headteacher, Ms Bennett).
Governors are appointed by the Trustees except for parent governors (two), who are elected by parents and carers, and staff governors (two), who are elected by all school staff.
