Role

The Board of Governors oversees the work of the Head Teacher and the Senior Management Team and assists in making decisions related to school development, finances, safety and the general well-being of the pupils and staff.

The Board may make use of smaller, specialist committees for certain projects or ongoing actions. These committees report back to the Board for the approval of any actions to be taken. Currently, there are three functioning committees: Finance, Building Our Future, Today and Uniform. Specific Governors are also assigned responsibility to each strand of the School Development Plan, liaising with strand leaders and reporting back to the Board of Governors.

The Board meets monthly, or more frequently should the need arise, to monitor the school accounts, the school roll, and other issues that affect its financial position. Board members also receive information about general educational provision, the curriculum and important events that take place within the school and its participation in the local community. They revise and approve all school policies and also take part in major decisions involving disciplinary actions. They are ultimately responsible for the welfare and safety of the whole school community, including all its pupils and members of teaching and non-teaching staff.

The Board is also committed to continuous improvement through quality assurance processes and to achieving excellent standards of education for the pupils of the school. To that end, the British School has been a member of the prestigious Council of British International Schools (COBIS) since 2005. All COBIS schools are inspected by the UK government-approved Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) on a regular basis every three years, and must meet strict criteria and standards.
