Governing Body

 

 

Cuddington Croft School Strategic Board

 

Staying at the forefront of outstanding education by developing innovative teaching practices, whilst supporting the growth of others.

 

 

Cuddington Croft Primary School is part of GLF Schools, a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) made up of Primary and Secondary schools.  The governance structure of the trust had been developed to support both the culture of GLF Schools and the effective management of a growing organisation. GLF Schools recognises the individuality of each school and that each school has its own distinct character and culture that is respectful of its community and context.

The Trust Board is accountable to the Secretary of State for all schools within the MAT and responsible for compliance with government and EFSA requirements, company law and charity law. Whilst the Trust Board will always remain accountable, there is delegation of decision making where appropriate. Further information on GLF governance arrangements can be found  here

Each school within the MAT has a School Strategy Board (SSB) to provide the local governance function, to which the Trust Board delegates.

 

In all schools, governance, should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

 

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management, including well-being, of staff
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

Each SSB has nine members, comprised of: voluntary members of the community, elected parent representatives, the Headteacher, the School Business Manager and members of the GLF central team. The members discharge their duties through: twice termly board meetings, monitoring visits and contributing to other working groups and committees within The Trust.  Members also attend training to improve understanding of their role and to keep up to date in the ever-changing educational world.
