School Improvement Board
A School Improvement Board (SIB) has been constituted as determined by Emmanuel Schools Foundation. The SIB will act as committee of the Foundation. The purpose of the SIB is to provide support and challenge to the school on behalf of the Foundation. It will achieve this through providing strategic direction at a local level, promoting high standards and educational achievement. The SIB will work in partnership with the Principal, the Senior Leadership Team, and executive team from the Foundation. The SIB’s terms of reference can be located here.
