Trustees

The Trustees of Knightsfield School have responsibility for the strategic direction of the school. They help the school set the values, vision and strategic aims. They support and challenge the school in their role as a critical friend.  

Knightsfield School Trustees Body is made up of three groups: parents, staff and community members. Trustees work collaboratively with the headteacher and staff to promote and ensure high standards in achievement. They also ensure that pupils and staff are safe. They visit the school each term with a focus on holding the school to account whilst monitoring and evaluating learning, safety and provision. They also seek pupils and parents views about the school.

The work of the Trustee Body is undertaken by two committees – the Resources & Audit Committee and the Strategy & Pupil Committee. The terms of reference for each committee are agreed at the first committee meeting of each academic year and are available to view as a PDF document.
