Our Board of Trustees is responsible for the Governance of our school. The Board is made up of six elected members of the school community, the principal, a staff representative and, four proprietors representatives. The Proprietors Representatives are appointed by the Bishop.

Our Board provides strategic guidance, and a monitoring framework through which to assess the school’s progress towards strategic directions. Board meetings are public meetings which anyone may attend. Should the board decide that a particular matter – usually relating to student discipline or personnel – needs to be discussed privately, it can move into a ‘public excluded’ section of the meeting.

Under the National Administration Guidelines, (NAGs), boards of trustees carry responsibilities in six areas:

· student achievement, particularly for identifying students at risk and addressing barriers to achievement (NAG 1)

· strategic planning and school self-review (NAG 2)

· personnel (NAG 3)

· finance and property (NAG 4)

· health and safety, including emotional safety (NAG 5)

· compliance with all relevant legislation (NAG 6).
