Our Governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in our school. Governors appoint the Head of School and the Assitant Headteachers. The Executive Headteacher was appointed by the Governors and ODST. It is governors who hold senior leaders to account for the performance of the school and, working with the Headteacher, make the tough decisions about balancing resources.
ODST has a Board of Trustees which oversees the work of the Trust including the effectiveness of Local Governing Bodies.
Our Local Governing Body meets up to six times a year. Every governor attends these meetings and may also be a member of our sub-committee, which meet circa five times a year.
The Resources Committee ensures that the school uses its resources to achieve best value, thereby supporting the learning of all our students. This Committee is also responsible for Health and Safety, Premises and Staffing.
The Resources Committee comprises:
- Jean Holderness
- Jane Denby – Chair
- Rev. Margreet Armitstead
- Andrew Hall
- Linda Raabe-Marjot
- Rev. Charlie Kerr
- Katie Screaton – Headteacher
- Sam Rhodes [School Business Manager] in attendance
Please see the attendance record below.
