Park Road achieved Academy status in January 2011. Effectively, this means that we are a public independent school.
There are 3 trust members who are responsible for everything that goes on in school.
The trust has delegated some powers to the Governing Body. It is the link between the Trust, teaching staff and the local community. It is made up of parent governors elected in a secret ballot by parents, one teacher governor and one non-teaching staff governor elected by the staff and the Headteacher/s. A further three governors are co-opted from the local community, with particular emphasis on local business.
The Governors have a general responsibility for determining the policy and effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation. However, the Headteacher/s control/s the day to day running of the school.
The areas where the Governing Body have responsibility include: school finance, the care and use of the school premises, the appointment of the Headteacher/s and other staff, school hours and holidays, the curriculum, admissions of pupils, discipline and the suspension of pupils from school.
The Governing Body must meet at least once a term. Ultimately, the governors answer to the Trustees and the Department of Education for the running of the school. The Governing Body is part of the school partnership ethos at Park Road which works voluntarily for the good of the school with the interests of the pupils as paramount.
