Governance

Epiphany School Governors

The Epiphany School Governing Body is made up of 7 Foundation Governors appointed by the Bishop of Winchester, 2 elected parent representatives and 2 staff representatives as well as the Headteacher. 

 

The full Governing Body meets twice a term and is responsible for setting the strategic framework of the school and monitoring its implementation. It acts as a ‘critical friend’ by holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and also oversees the finances of the school ensuring that public money is well spent. In addition, the Governing Body is responsible for the admission of children to the school in accordance with the published Admissions Policy.
