The Governing Body

Introduction

Belper School and Sixth Form Centre is a Foundation School.  Foundation Schools are devolved from the Local Authority and the governors of the school have increased roles and responsibilities.

Governing bodies have three core strategic functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its students, and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Our full Governing Body meets regularly over the year.  Responsibilities are also delegated to sub-committees in certain areas. These sub-committees are:

  • Curriculum and Performance
  • Joint Consultative Committee
  • Personnel and Finance
  • Site
  • Student Matters, Equality and Community

At meetings, our Governors receive information, discuss key issues and are involved in the decision-making process on matters affecting the strategic direction of the school.
