Who are the Governors?
The Federated Governing Board is made up of representatives from the parent community, staff, local community, Local Authority and the Diocese of Portsmouth; all of whom donate their time and expertise freely for the benefit of the schools. They all bring something different, whether that is educational, professional or spiritual.
The Governors are responsible for the overall strategic direction and focus of the schools. They are not responsible for the day-to-day running of the schools, which rests with Duncan Mills and his leadership team. Governors approve school policies and procedures, agree budgets, ensure the National Curriculum is taught to all children to the highest standard, that the children can learn in a clean and safe environment, and also act as a “critical friend” to the Head. They offer support and advice, but where necessary they also challenge and ask questions that parents would want them to be asking.
