The School Board sets the strategic direction of the school and has the responsibility of ensuring it runs in accordance with its founding values and the values of Inspired; that it is fiscally responsible and operates within a budget that it sets annually. It also has the key responsibility of hiring the school’s Headteacher (Director) and for monitoring and evaluating his or her work. The School Board does not involve itself in the day-to-day running of the school but it does monitor the safeguarding of students, their well-being and their academic progress to ensure that the school’s values and policies are adhered to. It also sets annual fee levels.
