Governing Body & Trust
Purbrook Park’s governing body is ambitious and prides itself on leading and directing the school’s strategic vision for the future. Governors are well informed and skilled to make decisions in regular meetings, conserving and developing the school’s infrastructure, and ensuring the effective and efficient spending of capital and resources.
As a Trust School, we are a state-funded, local authority maintained foundation school, which receives extra support (usually non-monetary) from our charitable trust, made up of partners working together for the benefit of the school and the community.
Trust status helps us to:
- Raise standards by strengthening new and existing long-term partnerships between schools and external partners.
- Broaden opportunities and increase aspirations for our pupils by supporting children’s all-round development, and by tackling issues of social deprivation and exclusion.
- Strengthen overall leadership and governance.
- Give business foundations and other organisations the opportunity to be more involved in our local community.
- Engage with parents.
- Bring a renewed energy and enthusiasm to the way we work by learning from other schools and external partners.
- Create our distinctive individual and shared ethos.
