Welcome to the Cressex Community School website. We are very proud of our students and we hope you will enjoy seeing reflected on our website the achievement, enthusiasm and enjoyment that are part of everyday life in our outstanding new building.
The Cressex Governing Body is committed to ensuring that all our students have the best possible start in life. Working with the Headteacher and his team, we are responsible for setting the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school. We are also responsible for
- challenging and monitoring the school's performance and
- ensuring effective management of the way resources are used, so that we know money is being well spent.
We do these tasks by actively asking informed questions at our regular meetings, understanding the data available to us, making regular visits to the school and keeping up to date with good practice in other schools. We are personally committed to high achievement and keep ourselves updated through regular governor training.
We have a range of specialist skills, for example in finance, education and project management, that we use to benefit the school, through our support for the Headteacher and staff. As people who live locally, we provide a link between the school and our community. We also look outwards to the wider community, through our engagement with the family of Cooperative Schools.
We work together, as volunteers, to ensure that every student at Cressex has as many opportunities as possible for achievement and success.
