Governor Register of Business and Financial Interest and Governance roles in other schools

Following the Ofsted inspection in April 2016, The Governing Board have worked hard to review processes, procedures and how best to fulfil our roles and responsibilities. In particular we restructured committees and directed Governor recruitment to ensure a full range of skills exist on the Board. In response to our efforts, the following comments were made in an interim monitoring visit issued by HMI:
“The leadership team, staff and governors are addressing areas for
improvement raised at the last inspection resolutely and with a shared sense of urgency”.
“Governors are resilient”.
“Governors are placing themselves in a stronger position to challenge school leaders”.
“Importantly, they respond to advice and guidance from external sources positively and quickly”.
We are pleased that our efforts have been acknowledged and continue to work hard to help the school improve.
