Welcome, by Ian Coker, Chair of Governors
On behalf of everybody at Holbrook School for Autism, I welcome you to our website where I hope you will get a flavour of what goes on in our fantastic school.
I have been a Governor for eight years and Chair for three. Lead by Sam Bayliss, we firmly believe that ‘learning comes to life’ through our personalised learning opportunities, enabling all our students to go on to lead full and meaningful lives.
The task of the Governing Body is to govern the school through the implementation of three core functions: providing strategic leadership, holding the Headteacher to account and making sure the school’s money is well spent. We do this by meeting at least six times a year and also by delegating specific tasks to individual or groups of Governors who then report back to the Governing Board.
If you would like to know more about the role of Governors, please do not hesitate to contact me via our Clerk to Governors, Emma Kealey, at firstname.lastname@example.org
