Governing Board Information

You will remember that an Interim Executive Board was put in place of the previous Governing Board in order to support the school through its difficult times. The IEB came to an end at the October half term and a Shadow Governing Board put in its place. This is a Shadow Board, with members approved by the Local Authority and will be in existence for a year. The SGB is, to all intents and purposes, a ‘normal’ Governing Board with the same responsibilities and obligations as laid out in the Governance Handbook, October 2020, published by the Department for Education. This states the three overarching responsibilities of effective governance are to:

•       Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

•       Hold executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and

•     Oversee the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

A new Governing Board will be constituted from January 2023 to replace the SGB, with co-opted Governors, Parent Governors and Staff Governors.

We are very fortunate to have:

  • Jane Ridgewell, remains on the SGB to provide continuity together with her expertise and experience;
  • Anita Gondal and Asma Begum as parent Governors;
  • Simon Johnson, St Matthew Big Local, Yahye Abdi, SOCOPA, and Karen Reed, PCSO, as Community Governors;
  • Suzanne Uprichard will also remain as Chair and is a National Leader of Education.
