Message from the Chair of Trustees

I would like to extend a warm welcome and my upmost gratitude to you, for considering Khalsa Science Academy. I hope that you have found the information here useful for your decisions about your child’s early education.

It is a privilege to be part of a school where each of us is committed to providing education that is seated firmly in the universal values of respect, honesty and community.  We are an inclusive, preparing our young for the challenges of tomorrow.  We believe in unconditional and positive regard for all of our children so that they can be present as themselves.

We take our responsibility to nurture the next generation of thinkers and innovators, very seriously. As a result, we make no apologies for having high standards and expectations to ensure a safe, developmental and successful learning journey for our pupils.

 

Trustees at Khalsa Science Academy

The governing body of KSA conducts its business to take account of the three roles of the governing bodies as outlined in the Governors’ Handbook:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.

  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

The day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the head teacher and senior leadership team.

 

The composition of the board of trustees

 

The trustee board comprises of 9 trustees in total. Every trustee appointed to the board is appointed on the basis of the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.

 

The number of trustees in each category is:

 

  • 1 Principal
  • 1 Chair
  • 1 Vice Chair
  • 1 Elected Staff Trustee
  • 2 Associate Members
  • 1 Co-opted Trustee
  • 2 Elected Parent Trustee

 

Meetings of the board of trustees

 

The full board meets 3 times a year: all meetings are clerked by a Leeds City Council trained professional clerk. There are also 2 trustee committees which meet 3 times a year and which have delegated authority.

 

The committees are:

 

  • Teaching and Learning
  • Business Management

 

Attendance at Meetings

 

Trustees have good attendance at meetings overall. Apologies for non-attendance are considered on an individual basis: trustees are aware though the code of conduct that non-attendance, which includes apologies not being accepted, will result in the removal of a trustee six months from the date of first non-attendance.
