GovernorsWelcome to the governors’ section of the Acland Burghley website. The school’s Governing Body governing board includes parents and co-opted governors, a local authority governor, a staff governor and an associate or associates.
Together our role is to help shape the overall direction and character of the school, monitor progress and standards, review and approve the budget, appoint and support the headteacher and senior staff, review policies and procedures and ensure the school fulfils its statutory duties.
Our key priorities for this year are
- raising attainment and achievement for all students;
- securing the financial future of the school and all its services;
- extending the range, visibility and quality of arts activities and student participation in them;
- and developing the school culture and ethos.
We meet regularly and non-staff governors also visit the school, making contact with the different departments and attending events and performances. We welcome contact with all those involved in the school and will be happy to hear your views on any matters of concern.
Minutes of full Governing Body meetings are available on request from firstname.lastname@example.org
