We have a Governing Board that comprises of 9 people and they each fulfill a different role as Governors. As a church school some of the Governors represent the Diocese of Oxford, some represent the Staff, Parents and some are appointed to represent the Harcourt Trust which has supported the school since it’s creation over 200 years ago by the Countess Harcourt. Staff and Parent Governors are elected members of the Governing Board.

In essence the Governing Board has a wide-ranging remit but its main functions are:-

  • The setting of the strategic direction of the school
  • Ensuring accountability for the educational performance of the school
  • Ensuring the best use of financial resources

If you would like to contact a Governor, please send an email via the Clerk – lcoe@clewergreen.org.uk

The whole governing board meets 6 times a year.  In addition we have the following committees:

Resources - meets 6 times a year and is chaired by Mr Graham Farhall
Standards - meets 3 times a year and is chaired by TBC
Pay Review Committee - meets once a year and is formed from Resources.
Pay Appeals Committee - is convened when necessary
