Governance and Leadership of Prior Park Schools
The Paragon is part of the Prior Park Schools Group, which is presided over by an active Governing Body, chaired by Mr Michael King. Details about the members of this body, their background and experience can be found below. This body provides governance and support for the Head Teachers and their schools via a number of Advisory Committees which include Local Governance Committees (LGC) for each of the schools, an Education Committee and a Finance, Audit & Risk Committee (FAR).
Heads of Prior Park Schools and the Director of Operations & Finance meet formally each half term. There is regular communication between the Heads and their management teams. Each of the three PPS Heads and the Director of Operations & Finance is accountable directly to the Governing Board.
The Chair of the Local Governance Committee (LGC) for The Paragon is Mrs Jane Singleton. The Paragon LGC meets once every term and includes two other representatives of the main Governing Body and the Head of the school alongside members of the Senior Leadership Team.
