Memorandum Of Understanding with Victoria College

Governing Body

 

As Victoria School is in Federation with Cherry Oak School we have one Governing Body for both schools. The Governing Board of the Federation has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Board of Victoria College, enabling the College to benefit from being associated with the Federation.

 

The Governors have a great deal of experience and offer us both challenge and support as necessary.

All the Governors are extremely dedicated and give generously of their time to both schools in the Federation.

 

Our Governors are made up of representatives from key stakeholder groups - parents, staff, the Local Authority and the local community.

 

We generally have two full Governing Body meetings a term and we also have committees for Finance, Personnel, Teaching & Learning and Buildings, Health & Safety (including the Resilience Team).

 

You can contact the Governing Body through the Clerk to the Governors - Ms Clare Blackshaw on the main school telephone number : 0121 476 9478.
