The school is managed by a Board of Directors who are responsible in law for the school and we have a duty of care towards the children, their parents, staff, visitors and others associated with the school.
It takes responsibility for the way the school is led, sympathetic to its founding principles of ensuring the school strives for a high standard, bilingual education to all pupils.
Its key responsibilities are to focus on three core strategic functions:
1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
2. Holding the Lead Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.
3. Ensuring prudent financial management of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
