The GLC Board of Directors has overarching responsibility for governance at each GLC Academy. It has decided that outcomes for children should be monitored through a progress board which acts as a subcommittee of the GLC Board, meeting on a monthly basis and reporting periodically back to the board.

For details of the GLC Board, please click here.

The Governors are responsible for policy and strategy and the Head of School is responsible for the day-to-day running of the school and ensuring that the policy and strategy agreed by the Governors is implemented. The Governing Body has many legal responsibilities and amongst these are ensuring that the National Curriculum is properly delivered, arranging for religious education to be carried out, deciding how to spend the delegated budget and approving the many different school policies, such as those referring to discipline and behaviour and health and safety.

In this section of the website you can find out who the governors of our school are.

To contact the governors, please email the clerk
