Leicester Partnership School

Governance

The Leicester Partnership School [LPS] is governed by a Management Committee [The equivalent of The Governing Body in a mainstream school].  The Management Committee is responsible for overseeing the management and strategic development of the LPS but delegates much of this responsibility to the Head Teacher.  The Management Committee have specific responsibilities in the following key areas:-

  • Staffing
  • Finance & Resources
  • Child protection & Safeguarding
  • Pupil Premium Students

The Management Committee ensures that the LPS is run effectively and in accordance with the statutory guidance published by the DFE. The Management Committee fulfills its responsibilities through a range of processes and procedures, including:-

  • Termly Management Committee meetings
  • Sub- committee meetings
  • School visits & audits

The current Management Committee is composed as follows:-

  • Christopher Bruce [ Chair & Community Member]
  • Anna White [Community Member]
  • Shaun Whittingham [ Head Teacher]
  • Julia Conlon [Authority Member]
  • Jevon Payne  [ Parent Member]
  • Ms Rose Angus [Community Member]
  • Rameses Magrabhi  [Community Member]

The Management Committee is often assisted in its duties by Mark Cordell who is the School’s Raising Achievement Advisor and by the Management Committee’s Clerk, Dr. Robyn Cooper.

The current Management Committee have a broad range of skills and experience, particularly in the field of education.  Anna White is the Director of the Secondary Education Improvement Partnership and Christopher Bruce is the Executive Head Teacher of two of the City’s special schools.  Jevon Payne is our parent member but is also the Director of Educ8 Sports Academy, which runs sports academy provision across the country. Julia Conlon is responsible for overseeing the provision of Youth, Connexions and Alternative Provision Services on behalf of the Local Authority.  Rose Angus is Head Teacher of Sir Jonathan North Academy and Rameses Magrabhi is a Deputy Head Teacher at Madani Federation of Schools.  All members bring skills and experiences that stretch beyond the boundaries of their specific employment.   The Management Committee utilises these stills effectively to support and challenge the LPS’s Head Teacher and to ensure that the LPS’s resource are deployed effectively.
