'All dressed up and nowhere to go' On the last day of half term Southgate Primary held Glam Day. We thought, as we hadn't had the chance to dress up for a long time, we would don our best clothes and glam up for the day. We all looked fab-u-lous! https://t.co/REswpoutY4

School Standards Board (SSB)

Our School Standards 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.

To contact the Chair of our Standards Board, Mr Kevin Gawley, please email k.gawley@glfschools.org

Please see the table below for the members of our School Standards Board.
