Governance - School Strategy Board


Our Schools Strategy 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.

The members of our School Strategy Board are:

Mr C Redmond Chair  
Mrs K Storey Headteacher  
Mrs J Freeman GLF Education Partner  
Mrs J Morrison Parent Representative  
Mr S Roberston Community Representative  
Mrs J Histead Community Representative  
Mrs M Mincheva GLF Representative  
Ms C Woodville GLF Representative  
Mrs J Wainwright Clerk  


Both Mrs Wainwright (the Clerk to the Governors) and Mr C Redmond (Chair of the School Strategy Board) can be contacted through the School Office or by emailing
