Local Governance Board
The Eastwick School Local Governance Board fulfils a monitoring role to ensure accountability and financial probity in the operation of the school and works with the school community to establish the strategic direction of Eastwick School.
Our objective is to build on the success of Eastwick and help drive a process of continuous improvement.
We are made up of staff and parent representation, as well as members of the local community to ensure a broad range of skills and experience is available to the school. The following table shows the members of our 2020 - 2021 Local Governance Board and their roles and responsibilities.
The Local Governance Board formally meets each term.
*Attendance is expressed as attended over expected
Note: During the Covid-19 pandemic, additional information meetings also took place.
Governors also undertake to visit the school at least once each term and to spend time in the classroom familiarising themselves with how the school operates. Governors are encouraged to see for themselves what success looks like and the hard work of both pupils and staff in achieving this, and to recognise challenges that might affect learning outcomes.
Over the past year or so the Local Governance Board has been exploring how best to safeguard and improve the educational provision at Eastwick in the context of changes to educational policy regarding how schools are funded and operated.
On the Teaching & Learning side, the Local Governance Board continues to support the school in delivering the new curriculum and the move to assessment without levels.
