Ridgewood High School

Inspire today achieve tomorrow

At Ridgewood Community High School, we have a strong and active Board of Governors. Our Governors meet regularly and have distinctive roles. They meet once a term as
a full governing body, and every term in subcommittees, these are:

• Finance
• Personnel
• Teaching & Learning
• Health & Safety

These committees report to the full Governing body with recommendations. Governors core strategic functions are:

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
• Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;
• Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure the school adheres to the financial policies
