School Governance

Quo Vadis and its Directors are the proprietors of the school. They meet regularly with the Headteacher to provide oversight, support, and to ensure the proper functioning of the school as well as the successful execution of the School Development Plan. The day-to-day management of the school is undertaken by the Headteacher and the Senior Management Team (SMT).

Independent advice is provided by the Advisory Board, where each member (non-remunerated volunteer) has a distinctive skill set but all provide advice and support in all areas of school life.

The Advisory Panel exists so that the Proprietors have sufficient knowledge and advice to ensure:

* Highest level of safeguarding

* Strategic direction

* School improvement

* Accreditation and Inspection

* Financial Planning

* Resourcing

* Policy development

* Facility maintenance

* Independent panel members at hearings, such as for complaints or disciplinary matters

* Excellent performance management to enhance teaching and learning

* Compliance with all statutory and regulatory requirements

* Community development

* High standards of professionalism and quality assurance systems

The advisory board will also ensure we continually share and develop excellence through several initiatives including other Headteacher visits, mentoring of the SMT, networking events for staff of several schools and organising sporting and cultural events.
