The County High School, Leftwich is part of the Sir John Brunner Foundation.

As an autonomous learning community, the CHSL Governing Body recognises the additional responsibilities independence as a Converter Academy brings. Governors also acknowledge independence is important for innovation, improvement and the raising of standards. This empowers the School's leadership to make the right decisions for our students, staff and wider community, recognising that autonomy and accountability go hand in hand.

Accordingly, the Governing Body understands its role is to deal with the strategic direction of the School and to hold leadership and management to account. Therefore, it involves:

  • being accountable for the School's results, ensuring continuous improvement and knowing students and staff are safe and happy;

  • being a critical friend to the leadership, holding the operation of the School to account;

  • representing the School, instrumental in forming constructive relationships with the leadership, staff, students, parents and in the wider community to raise the School's profile and to promote community cohesion;

  • being committed, able to contribute a particular skill set, being prepared to undertake regular training to keep up-to-date with developments and avoiding conflicts of interest.
