The Board of Governors has an important strategic role to play in the management of the school, aiming to raise expectations of what can be achieved by all pupils and strengthen the involvement of parents and the community. We want to help provide the best possible education and educational opportunities for all of the pupils.
- setting the school’s vision and aims;
- establishing and maintaining the school’s ethos;
- setting the school’s plans and policies;
- monitoring and evaluating school performance; and
- promoting self evaluation to sustain school improvement.
As volunteers, Governors bring their experience, life skills and common sense to this task.
The Principal is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing board.
Working together, we strive to ensure that Bloomfield Collegiate School continues as a centre for “Excellence in a Caring Community”.
