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:-

  • Jevon Payne [ Chair & Parent Member]
  • Simon Catchpole [Vice – Chair & Community Member]
  • Shaun Whittingham [ Head Teacher]
  • Dr Joseph Dawson [Authority Member]
  • Christopher Bruce [ Community Member]
  • Ms Rose Angus [Community Member]
  • Vacancy [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, Robyn Cooper.

The current Management Committee have a broad range of skills and experience, particularly in the field of education.  Simon Catchpole 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. Dr Joseph Dawson is Head of the Local Authority’s SEND Services and also the Authority’s Principal Educational Psychologist.  Ms Rose Angus is Associate Principal of New College Leicester School.  All members bring skills and experiences that stretch beyond the boundaries of their specific employment.   The management Committee utilises these stills effectively to challenge the LPS’s Head Teacher and to ensure that the LPS resource is deployed effectively.
