Board of Trustees (B.O.T)

The Role and Responsibilities of the Board of Trustees

The role of the Board of Trustees is to govern the school. Boards of trustees are responsible for the school’s performance and focus their strategic planning on improving student achievement. They are required to set the direction for the school and monitor progress towards achieving it.

The board

  • is responsibly for property

  • is the employer of all staff

  • effectively manages school finances

  • sets the strategic plan for the school

  • approves the annual plan and targets

  • develops and reviews policies

  • monitors achievement of students

Board meetings

Board meetings are held monthly in the Staffroom on the third Wednesday of the month at 6.00pm. Meetings are open to the public and parents are welcome to attend as observers. Contact the school office to confirm meeting dates.

Whilst meetings are open for public attendance, they are not public meetings, but speaking rights can be granted to non board members at the discretion of the board. Any recommendations, questions or request to address the board should be put in writing and sent to the Board Chairperson at least a week before a meeting.
