Governors

Emmanuel Community School has a committed Governing Body who are responsible for providing oversight and accountability within the school.  They played a critical role including monitoring and challenging progress of the school in achieving its priorities.

The Governing Body receives its delegation from The Emmanuel School Trust (TEST), which is responsible for setting the vision, ethos and the strategic planning of the school.  Their role is to set the overall direction, monitor and evaluate performance and determine key policies.

Our Governing Body is made up of parents, staff (including the Headteacher), Directors of TEST, and other volunteers who all bring different views, experiences and skills.   If you would like to receive digital copies of minutes of meetings please contact admin@emmanuelcommunityschool.co.uk.

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 sub-committees of the Governing Body that meet regularly during the school year with specific remits delegated to them by the Governing Body. These are: Finance, Premises, Human Resources, Audit and Risk (FPHAR); Curriculum, Standards and ICT (CSI); and Admissions.
