Our grief is secondary to Martin’s wife, children, siblings and extended family and to his close friends for whom this loss is immeasurable. We extend our sincere condolences to them and they will remain uppermost in our minds in the forthcoming days and weeks.

This has come as a terrible shock to us all. We are heartbroken to have lost such a gifted, kind and popular Headteacher who has had such a profound impact on the lives of the children and colleagues in all the schools in which he has worked.

It is with great sorrow that we announce the very sad news that Mr Beard, our Headteacher passed away on Friday 17 January.

Students arrive for 8.30 and then lesson starts at 8.45am. Prevents lateness and allows a prompt start to period 1 - thank you for asking . 😊

Each student created fabric poppies in school to lay at Merstham Memorial today. We were joined by The British legion & members of the local community for a service & 2 minutes silence. The students made us proud. “We will remember them”. https://t.co/vBe63OieiV

Governance

Merstham Park School is part of GLF Schools, a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) made up of Primary and Secondary schools.  The governance structure of the trust had been developed to support both the culture of GLF Schools and the effective management of a growing organisation. GLF Schools recognises the individuality of each school and that each school has its own distinct character and culture that is respectful of its community and context.

The Trust Board is accountable to the Secretary of State for all schools within the MAT and responsible for compliance with government and EFSA requirements, company law and charity law. Whilst the Trust Board will always remain accountable, there is delegation of decision making where appropriate. Further information on GLF governance arrangements can be found  here

Each school within the MAT has a School Strategy Board (SSB) to provide the local governance function, to which the Trust Board delegates.

In all schools, governance, should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management, including well-being, of staff
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Each SSB aims to have nine members, comprised of: voluntary members of the community, elected parent representatives, the Headteacher, the School Business Manager and members of the GLF central team. The members discharge their duties through: a  half-term board meeting, monitoring visits and contributing to other working groups and committees within The Trust.  Members also attend training to improve understanding of their role and to keep up to date in the ever-changing educational world.
