The governing body is the school’s accountable body.  It is responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards.  The governing body aims to ensure that children are attending a successful school that provides them with a good education and supports their well-being.

FOREWORD FROM THE CHAIR OF GOVERNORS

As Governors we act as a ‘critical friend’ and give our time voluntarily to support the school. We are responsible for ensuring that a high quality of leadership, teaching, and student performance are provided and maintained.

Out aim is to make Rainhill High School the best it can possible be for staff and students, enabling each to reach their full potential. We also want to be a good neighbour in the community we reside in and welcome comments from all stakeholders.

In the year to come we aim to build on the improvements we have made and focus on:

Continuing to provide and excellent education for all of our students.
Support out teachers to enable them to do their best.
Building the capability of the governor team.
Manage the growth in pupil numbers, so that every child is given first class pastoral care.
Continue to manage the school budget prudently.

Finally, the past year saw Steve Anderson step down from his role of the Chair of Governors after 14 years as a Governor and subsequently Chair.

During this time the school has improved and Steve’s work and leadership during this period have played an important part in making Rainhill High the good school it is today.

The Governing Body will endeavour to build on this success.
