Governing Body

Our School Governors are all unpaid volunteers.  They act as directors of Park School for Girls Ltd as well as being trustees of the charity.  The charity is a company limited by guarantee and the Governors act as its members.

The Governors have responsibility for overseeing the management and running of the School. Their role is a strategic one and they do not get involved in the day-to-day operations of the School. They provide support and challenge for the School. They are able to do this across all aspects of school management as between them they have a wide range of skills and experience.

As well as meeting termly as a full board, the Governors carry out their supervision in separate committees to cover:

  • Safeguarding
  • Health & Safety
  • Finance and General Purposes
  • Education
  • Safeguarding

The Governors work closely with the senior management team, are regularly in School and briefed on what is happening, and offer support to the management team whilst also carrying out regular reviews and inspections and ongoing general supervision.
