We work closely with the Headteacher and her senior team, sharing their focus on raising standards, while providing firm support and constructive challenge.

 

We have three core strategic functions:

 

i)    Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

 

ii)   Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

 

iii)  Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

 

We take a keen personal interest in all aspects of the school, developing close links with the school community and ensuring that we contribute to the life of the school and educational experience of the children. We all believe that Summerside is a school to be proud of and we are determined to ensure that all the children will continue to receive the best education that we can possibly provide.
