Board of Trustees

About our Board of Trustees

The Campbells Bay School Board of Trustees includes parents, one staff representative and the Principal. Elections for the board take place every three years.

The Board of Trustees meets in the school conference room every month during term time. Board meetings are open for anyone to attend, but they are not public meetings. This means members of the public may attend, but will be asked to leave when the board goes into committee, and do not have speaking or voting rights.

The Board of Trustees set the strategic direction of the school alongside the senior management team.

About the Governance of Campbells Bay School

The Board is entrusted to work on behalf of all stakeholders in Campbells Bay School, and is accountable for the school’s performance. It emphasises strategic leadership, sets the standards and vision for the school, and ensures Campbells Bay complies with all legal and policy requirements. Policies are made at a governance level and outline clear delegations to the Principal.

Along with the Principal, the board serves as part of the leadership team, and the Principal reports to the board as a whole. In serving the school the board is proactive rather than reactive, and does not involve itself in the daily operational matters of the school. The board places student achievement as its focus, and aims to ask the right questions to best advance the success of the pupils.

Role of the Board

The Board of Trustees is accountable for the management of the school. It ensures the goals laid out in the school’s Charter are achieved through good practises. The Board serves a number of practical purposes, including setting strategic goals, determining board policy, delegating powers to the appropriate groups of individuals, and reviewing how well all of those functions are being performed.

The Principal manages the school within the parameters set by the policies of the Board. The Board and Principal work in partnership to provide and maintain overviews of school activities, develop and review board policy, provide strategic direction and keep track of progress on all these fronts.
