Governors

Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising college standards. The role of the governing body is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. Time and time again Ofsted has noted that the most effective schools demonstrate effective leadership and management - including by the governing body.

Strategic Leadership

School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. 

Each individual governor is a member of a governing body. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing body; decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing body. 

The role of the governing body is a strategic one. Its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the college
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the college is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the Head Teacher as a critical friend.

The Head Teacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the college and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body.

The governing body at De Lisle have delegated responsibilities from the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi-Academy Trust and work in partnership with the other schools in the Trust and Board of Directors.

De Lisle governing body undertook an external review of Governance in June 2016. The review was undertaken by the National Governors’ Association. The report identifies many strengths and determined the governing body to be highly effective in its functions and workings.

  • March 31, 2020 Lots of work handed in already so well done. If you or your parents have an I-phone, try using the camera on the ‘Notes’ app to hand work in. It gives you the option to use it as a scanner and you can crop the picture perfectly and e-mail to your teacher.
  • March 29, 2020 Well done to all of our students that have worked so hard last week in completing and handing in the work that has been set on the website. The work for next week will be ready for you to start tomorrow. Please e-mail your teachers if you have any problems. Stay safe. 🙏🏼
