Update regarding governance:
Now that we have come out of special measures, we will shortly be reconstituting the governing body as a Local Governing Body. Most of the TGC members will continue in post although we have sadly had to say goodbye to Huw Morgan whom we thank wholeheartedly for giving us the benefit of his expertise and wisdom over the past year and for chairing the Resources committee. We welcome Madhu Richards (Finance Manager for ODST) on to the governing board as an interim measure until the LGB is up and running.
At full strength, our LGB will have 4 foundation governors (representing the school's CofE foundation), 4 community governors, 2 parent governors and one staff governor, with the ability to co-opt two additional governors for specific skills or experience as needed. We will shortly be holding parent governor elections and more information on this role will be provided soon - watch this space!
The change over to LGB will happen at the end of September, when the ODST board meets to ratify all appointments.
If you have any questions for us, we can be contacted via the school address.
