Coombe Wood School is part of Folio Education Trust (FET), and although we work very closely with the Trust, the day to day governance of the school is carried out by the Local Governing Body (LGB). The Local Governing Body help the school in implementing a strong Culture and Ethos and are responsible for monitoring performance and holding school leaders to account through adopting the role of a “critical friend”.
The structure and remit of the Board of Trustees and members can be viewed here.
Local Advisors attend Local Governing Body meetings twice a term; these meetings have a different focus to cover relevant aspects of school evaluation and development.
Outcomes for Pupils (To include SEND & Pupil Premium)
Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment
Leadership & Management – Evaluation and Development Objectives
LGB People (one meeting per term) covers the following:
- Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare (To include Safeguarding & Child Protection)
- Health & Safety including Educational Visits
- Financial Management
- Leadership & Management – Evaluation and Development Objectives
In order to share the workload Lead Advisors are appointed for each of these areas; Advisors visit the school to keep up to date on these areas.
The Local Governing Body is made up of volunteers from the parent body, staff, and the wider community. The names of the current members are set out below.
