I am proud to have been associated with the School since 1986, firstly as a parent and since 2002 as a Governor. It is a privilege to chair the Council of Governors, a position I have held since 2006.
At Ditcham Park School the Governors work as a team in conjunction with the Head Teacher and Staff to promote the School’s overall aim to "maintain a financially viable, stable and thriving School, achieving high standards of pastoral care and educational attainment"
Governance at Ditcham Park School
I and my fellow Governors are responsible for the effective governance of this unique and successful School through the Council of Governors which meets five times a year and two Sub-committees, one for Finance, and one for Buildings. We have overall responsibility for all aspects of the life of the School including, in particular, Educational, Legal, Financial, and Personnel matters.
Governors are appointed both for the abilities, skills and experience which they can bring to the Council as well as providing those without any previous experience an opportunity to expand their horizons and enhance their personal development through relevant training and mentoring. It is important that we all have the ability to work as a team in conjunction with the Head Teacher and Staff.
