Governance

We are pleased to welcome you to the governance section of the site. We hope it will give you an insight into who we are and what we do.

Baylis Court School is part of the Baylis Court Trust and has an active and committed School Governing Committee. Members support the values of the school and dedicate their time and effort to further its ongoing development.  They take an active part in meetings, get involved with the school and its pupils and help senior management make informed decisions about the way forward for the school.

Working in partnership with the Headteacher and staff, committee members ensure high standards of achievement for the young people in the school. We focus on strategy and school improvement, we decide what we want the school to achieve, set priorities and monitor progress to realise these aims. We have three core strategic functions delegated to us by the Baylis Court Trust:

  • Setting the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school, within the context of The Baylis Court Trust
  • Holding the Headteacher and senior staff to account for the educational performance of the school and its students
  • Ensuring the school remains within the budget delegated by The Baylis Court Trust and making sure the money is well spent.

Who are the Committee Members?

The School Governance Committee is made up of the Headteacher and people from various different groups who have an interest in the success of the school, including parents, staff and the community. The committee welcome a range of viewpoints and make decision together about a variety of issues. Between them committee members have a wide breadth of skills and experience to enable the school governance committee collectively to support and challenge the school leadership. As vacancies arise specific skills are targeted to fill gaps in the group.
