The Joseph Whitaker School benefits from very strong governance from a dedicated, skilled and experienced Board.
The role of school governors is to set the strategic direction for the school, to hold school leaders to account for improving performance and to make sure money is well spent. Our Governors are representatives of the local community, parents and elected school staff. They bring a range of interests, knowledge and skills to the school and they all work in a voluntary capacity.
They have responsibility for overseeing the strategic framework of the school including setting policies, approving the curriculum and overseeing the school budget.
The Governing Body works as a team with shared responsibilities. Governors never make decisions on their own, nor do they act as individuals.
Governors meet on a regular basis and their work is conducted through full Governing Body meetings.
