COOMBE SECONDARY SCHOOLS GOVERNING BODY

Purpose

The Academy Trust has established a local governing body for the Coombe Secondary Schools (Coombe Boys’ School and Coombe Girls’ School) under the terms of the Trust’s articles of association.

Each academy within the Trust is accountable to and must serve its community. The Governing Body of the Coombe Secondary Schools is charged with delivering these aims.

Whilst the Board of Trustees has overall responsibility and ultimate decision-making authority for all the work of the Trust, and for the standards achieved by pupils and students of the academies, the Governing Body has the responsibility of ensuring that the vision of the Trust is fulfilled.

The Governing Body is focused on translating the strategy of the Trust into day-to-day reality in the two schools for which it has responsibility, ensuring that the staff working in the academies are supported and challenged and that the needs of the pupils and students are met.

Core Purpose

To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; hold the headteachers to account for the educational performance of the schools and its pupils and the performance management of staff; and oversee the financial performance of the schools making sure its money is well spent.
