Parent Trustee Election

The School, as you know, has very recently had an Ofsted inspection, and it is the view of the Board of Trustees that the Parent Trustee election will be temporarily put on hold pending the School’s receipt of and analysis of the report, its findings and any recommendation.  The School Improvement Plan which is published at the beginning of each academic year will incorporate any improvement priorities including recruitment of Parent Trustees.
