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 a strong focus on three core strategic functions of the school

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

Our full Governing Body normally meet twice each term.  Responsibilities are delegated to sub-committees for key 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 operational and strategic direction of the school.
