About Us » Governing Body
Hayes School is a member school of the Impact Multi Academy Trust comprising Hayes School and Ravens Wood School. Both schools are high achieving and popular schools working together for the benefit of the young people in our local community while retaining their own individual identities.
The Directors (trustees) on the Impact Multi Academy Trust Board, together with governors on the Local Governing Body of Hayes School set the vision and strategic direction for the school and hold leaders to account for the standards of education, care and student outcomes. The Governing Body at Hayes School have responsibility for raising school standards. Additionally, trustees hold the major legal and financial responsibilities and ensure that financial management is efficient and the use of resources provides value for money. All are strongly committed to fulfilling statutory safeguarding and child protection responsibilities, ensuring that Hayes School students are safe. Directors and Governors bring a wide range of experiences and professional expertise to the school.
The Governing Body is comprised of parent governors, teacher and associate staff governors, local authority governors and community governors.
The work of the Local Governing Body is carried out by two sub-committees and a Full Governing Board which meet at least each term:
Achievement, Teaching and Learning Committee
Resources, Leadership & Management Committee
These committees meet termly together with the Full Governing Board.
Governors carry out ongoing training and regular visits to the school to meet with staff and students, work with members of the senior leadership team and to undertake activities to support their evaluation of the school's work.
Governance of Hayes School has been judged outstanding by Ofsted and governors are actively involved in the life of the school, providing both challenge and support.
