Committees

To ensure that our Governing Body, which meets at least termly, achieves its core strategic purpose, two further committees operate and meet at least once a term to carry out a structured programme of work.

Finance, Premises & Risk (FPR)  Curriculum, Standards & Staffing (CSS) 
Chair: Robin James Chair: AJ Cripps

Our Governing Body is highly effective and together we believe that our contribution to Southfield’s improvement is excellent. Recent, major achievements include:

  • The appointment of an Executive Head Teacher and the development of a partnership with Eastrop Infant School to provide children with a continuous and high quality primary education in Highworth
  • The production of an ambitious School Improvement Plan (SIP) and accurate SEF
  • The development of a pre-school implementation plan
  • The development of new breakfast club provision, in partnership with our School Business Manager
