Governors

We have appointed a committed Governing Body with the breadth of skills needed to oversee both the pre-opening and post-opening phases of Emmanuel Community School. They have played a critical role in the opening of the School, and will continue to play this role in running an effective school.

The Governing Body is legally the body attached to The Emmanuel School Trust (TEST) which is responsible for maintaining the vision and ethos and the strategic planning of the school. Their role will be to set the overall direction, monitor and evaluate performance and determine key policies.

Our Governing body is made up of Parents, Staff, Community Governors and Directors of TEST, all bringing unique views and different skills.

We value all our Governors, and understand that they are volunteers and do this out of a desire to serve and improve the school and help to uphold standards.  Our Governors help to support the Head Teacher as a ‘critical friend’ and offer a broad breadth of skills and expertise to help guide us.

The Governing body seeks to enhance and improve the reputation and standing of the school in the wider community, we recognise that we have a diverse social and economic pupil base and we want to celebrate the international, cultural and ethnic mix within the school.

We have three committees who meet regularly during the school year and report back to the full governing body.  Our committees are FPH – Finance, Premises and HR, CSI – Curriculum, Standards and ICT and Admissions.
