The Governing Board at Uplands

At Uplands the governing board has oversight of all aspects of the work of the college. Our main duties are:

  • To ensure the safety and well-being of its students and staff;
  • To ensure school improvement in all areas;
  • To ensure sound financial management.

The governors consist of parents, staff and community members who give their time voluntarily and who are committed to the continuing improvement of the college for the benefit of all its users.

In the 2013 Ofsted report the inspectors said... 

"The governing body is a very well informed and skilled group of people who challenge and support the school. Governors know what is happening in the school. They are well briefed and understand the data that relate the school’s academic achievement to that of other schools nationally. They recognise how the quality of teaching is improving, and seek assurance that teachers’ pay awards are based on evidence of continuing levels of good performance. They set strategic direction and monitor the school’s implementation of policy; for example, they are aware of how the pupil premium funding is allocated and the impact it is having. Governors regularly participate in training organised by the local authority and have restructured the arrangements to ensure effective monitoring of the school improvement plan. The arrangements for safeguarding students and staff meet requirements."
