Meet the Governors
Langley Park School for Boys is part of the Langley Park Learning Trust, and every year receives substantial public funds to provide the best education possible for its pupils. In return, it is directly accountable to the Department for Education. The governors are responsible for the following:
- Ensuring that the school delivers a high standard of education to all students.
- Monitoring the performance of the school.
- Supporting the head teacher and the senior leaders in the school and challenging them when necessary.
- Ensuring that the school remains in good financial health and has robust accounting system.
The governing body has 8 people who between them have the full range of skills and experience to fulfill its responsibilities. This includes people from the local community who are appointed for their particular expertise, parents and staff. All non-staff governors give their time voluntarily and work very closely with Mr. Parsons and the staff at the school. The governing body delegates most of its responsibilities to the Head Teacher, who, in turn, provides most of the advice to the governing body. The governing body also commissions specialist advisers when required in order to ensure it carries out its responsibilities to the highest standards.
The Chair of Governors is Simon Kendrick and can be contacted directly with any questions at email@example.com. We really welcome your feedback and interest and will reply as soon as we can!
The full governing body meets 9 times per academic year. At these meetings, and in the preparation for them, the governing body provides the overall strategic direction for Langley Park School for Boys, ensures proper monitoring and evaluation of progress towards these goals, supports the Head Teacher and fulfils the collective role of a critical friend to the leadership of the school. The governing body also monitors its own performance and fitness for purpose, holding itself to the highest standard. The governing body works alongside the Langley Park Learning Trust to provide challenge and support to the school.
