School council held an assembly on plastic in the environment. Members produced a ppt, made props, rehearsed it and performed it to KS1. They did a fantastic job and put together a strong message about recycling plastic and reducing packaging in supermarkets. https://t.co/f0mjkQLSQR

Governing Body (SSB)

Our Schools Strategy Board (SSB) meets once per half term. Our SSB provides the local governance function for our schools which fits within the overall governance structure of GLF Schools. Further information about governance at GLF Schools can be found here.

The three core functions of governance are:

  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.

It is therefore important that our SSB comprises the right people with the right skills to make appropriate and informed decisions for a school, taking into account the views of children and students, staff, parents and the local community.

The Chair of the School Strategy Board may be contacted via the headteacher or in confidence through the school office or directly via email.

Members of the School Strategy Board

Name Role
Mr Stuart Wilson Chair
Mr Mark Beach Vice Chair
Mr John Williams    Head Teacher
Mrs Julie McGowan School Business Leader
Mrs Carol Everingham Safeguarding
Mr Tim Rogers GLF Education Partner
Mr Luke Nicolaou GLF Central Team
Mrs Jette Wainwright Clerk to the Members


The GLF Trust Board delegates certain functions to School Strategy Boards (SSBs), which form the local governance level within the Trust. The SSB must comprise the right people with the right skills to make appropriate and informed decisions for a school, taking into account the views of pupils, staff, parents and the local community.

GLF Schools is clear that each school must retain its own distinct character to meet the needs of its local area. The Trust places a high value on recruiting members for the School Strategy Boards who can represent the local community whilst also contributing a useful skillset and encourages applications from interested parties (click here for more information).

SSBs include members of the Trust’s central team to ensure effective collaboration and communication between the Executive team and the SSB.
