The Governing Body

The Governing Body at Coundon Court is responsible for the strategic oversight of school improvement and the quality of its daily work.

It works with the Co-Headteacher’s to:

  1. Ensure the quality of educational provision at Coundon Court through strategic review and quality assurance of the curriculum, lesson quality and student and staff experiences.

  2. Challenge and monitor the examination outcomes and other key performance indicators.

  3. Scrutinise, monitor and approve Coundon Court’s finances and property management.

  4. Ensure that Coundon Court complies with charity and company law.

  5. Operate the academy in accordance with the funding agreement that has been signed with the Secretary of State i.e. it provides a good educational experience on a daily basis and that all funds support this.

The Governors represent a range of interests from within the local community, the City of Coventry and the wider region.  Their task is to form a link between the needs and aspirations of these communities and the school’s work.
