Governors

The Governors of Southam College support the school in enabling our students to “be the best that they can be”. Governors meet regularly to review the progress that the school and students are making. We are here to provide strategic direction and a robust framework for review and scrutiny of all aspects of school life and making sure that the school provides a challenging and supportive education for everyone.

The Governing Body is made up of parents, staff and the wider community, each bringing different skills and experience to the Governing Body to enable it to carry out its role as a ‘critical friend’ effectively.

If you wish to contact the Chair of Governors please email the Clerk to the Governing Body, Maria Page in the first instance

As a school we recognise that a diversity of thought, voices and  perspectives is essential to good governance and the effective running  of any organisation. We regularly collect diversity information from our governors and, depending on current data, can use this to:

  • target recruitment to address gaps in experience and diversity
  • develop and adapt board practices to ensure full participation
  • prioritise training and awareness-raising in identified areas
  • address potential ‘blind spots’ through seeking wider advice and perspectives on current and upcoming opportunities, challenges and risks

However, we are unable to publish this information as it would mean  that individual members of our governing body are identifiable.
