We are part of the IFtl Family and share their vision to inspire he futures of us all through learning together and their values. Our role as local Governing Body is to use our understanding of the school’s needs and its community to provide focused local governance. We meet at least once every term and interact with the school via governor visits. We help the school set and reach targets in order to strive for excellence across the whole range of school life.

Our duties include:

  • setting strategic direction for the school
  • ensuring progress and attainment for all children
  • adopting and monitoring correct implementation of Trust policies
  • identifying and monitoring risks
  • ensuring safeguarding is effective and compliant
  • appointing, challenging and supporting the headteacher

The governors maintain relationships with our key stakeholders, which include the Friends Of Rickley Park (FORP), as we as endeavour to make the school a real community one whilst living our IFtL and school values
