Our Governors

Our governors are responsible for providing both support and challenge to the Headteacher and her team. 


This involves shaping the strategic direction of the School; reviewing and approving its budget; appointing and supporting the Headteacher and senior staff; and reviewing the policies and procedures of the school. Our Governors include representatives from parents, staff, the local authority, the hospital and the wider community.

Collecting and publishing Governing Board Diversity data

The governors of the Children's Hospital School at GOSH & UCH believe it is important that boards reflect the diversity of the school communities they serve.  Diverse boards promote inclusive school environments and provide diverse role models for staff and young people.

The governors are currently collecting data on the diversity of the board, including data on age, gender and ethnicity.  They will use that data to inform their recruitment and training needs and ensure there is always a diverse range of perspectives around the table to support robust decision making.

Due to our relatively small governing board, we will not publish this diversity data online as individual governors could be identified and we have a legal obligation to protect their personal data.
