The Board of Governors sets the strategic direction for TCA and makes corporate decisions in relation to the Board’s statutory functions. Our goal is to provide the best possible educational opportunities for all of our students. The major functions of the BOG consist of the following:
Motivating the students and staff through setting the school’s vision and aims. We build on our core educational values, beliefs and moral purpose, including those of the stakeholders’, and stay current with the most innovative practices regarding teaching and learning.
Establishing and maintaining the school’s ethos. We promote the moral, spiritual, intellectual, social and personal development of everyone in the academic and local community.
Approving, after careful consideration, the school’s plans and policies (initially drafted by the Head teacher).
Monitoring and evaluating school performance. The BOG, in coordination with the Head Teacher, draws up action plans for school improvement by using the appropriate data (provided by the Head Teacher) to identify and monitor key indicators throughout the school.
Sustaining school improvement by promoting self-evaluation.
We are committed to maintaining a positive culture and professional growth. We promote self-evaluation in our teachers, staff and senior management by encouraging them to reflect on their current practices and work ethics, to identify and celebrate their own strengths and the strengths of the school, and to identify and address areas for improvement in their work.
Promoting good governance: The TCA Board of Governors gives proper weight to the advice and guidance of the Head teacher. We ensure that the position of governor is not used for personal gain. We declare all potential conflicts of interest, protect the confidential nature of school business and work within the school’s scheme of management.
Disseminating information regarding the school and its students by providing parents with information about the school.
