Changes to the Governing Body

There have been some major changes to the Governing Body over the last few months. First of all, Mr John Willott resigned as Chair of Governors after several years of faithful service to the school. In June 2016, Mrs Amy Russell was elected as our new Chair. Mrs Anh Luu and Mrs Sheila Robinson have also joined the Governing Body in the last term, along with our new Headteacher, Mr Mark Trudgill.

The Governing Body has also created three new sub-committees, dealing with Resources, Teaching and Learning and Pupil Support, which will meet on a termly basis at least.

Governing Body Constitution

Last year the Gledhow Governing Body considered proposals for restructuring their constitution in respect of new legislation for all schools.

In essence this typically reduced the size of governing bodies and the number of representatives allowed from the different constituent groups involved with school.

The new constitution has been in place since September 2015.
