The Role of the Governing Board
2016 marks a year of considerable change for Temple Moor High School. Since the appointment of a new Principal earlier this year and a re-structure of the Senior Leadership Team, the Governing Board of TMHS is inspired by a shift in culture that is sweeping through the school.
In keeping with the positive changes being made within school, the Governing Board is also making significant changes to support all stakeholders in the pursuit of excellence.
Already, there is a renewed sense of cohesion and teamwork with a clear and simple shared aim of the education, health, safety and well-being of our young people being pivotal and sitting at the heart of everything we do.
In a very short space of time the Governing Board has formed a close working relationship with the Principal, Senior Leadership Team, staff and parents as well as evaluating the effectiveness of Governors, both individually and as a board. With regards to this, we have reconstituted the Governing Board and adjusted the various roles and responsibilities linked to our annual skills audit and our Governor Development Plan clearly focuses on school improvement and achieving the Governor Mark.
As a Governing Board we strongly believe that EVERY child deserves the right to have a first quality, personalised education that is linked to their individual skills, needs, abilities and aspirations in a safe and secure environment within the community.
It is to this end that the Governing Board of TMHS is fully committed to supporting all stakeholders to achieve this. By holding the school to account we will ensure that we fully prepare and provide the greatest chances possible for our young people entering life in the wider world.
