We've never found any weapons or drugs during our random searches - the fact that we actually conduct these searches helps to keep it this way. https://t.co/KaN1q07TNM

From this week we are doubling the number of random searches of students’ bags, jackets and lockers. It’s crucial we keep up an active and visible deterrent so students don’t make daft decisions and bring in something which would endanger our community.

Biographies for Governing Body

The Governing Body for Harris Academy Greenwich has been in place since September 2012 and comprises of governors appointed by the sponsor, staff governors, parent governors and ex-officio members including the CEO of the Harris Federation, and the Principal.  We meet once a term, with an additional strategy meeting in September. We are supported in our work by a professional Clerk to the Governors.

As we move into our fifth year as a Governing Body, we have seen some changes to the team, including a new Chair (Koyeli Solanki, an ex-Parent Governor), and a new Vice Chair (Lee McCormack). Governors continue to be linked to areas of the school, and meet regularly with Heads of Departments.

Governors use skills from their professional lives and their experience of governance to hold the Principal and other Senior Leaders to account, and by providing constructive challenge.  We also like to be aware of the day-to-day operations at school, so we visit when we can to see staff and students at work. Our role also includes being part of the disciplinary process, for which we are all specially trained.

Governors are encouraged to undertake training to develop their skills and expertise, and the Harris Federation provide a wide range of training opportunities to governors.

Governors continue to work on enabling the school to provide the best opportunities in life for all of our young people.  This means that we have to look ‘beyond outstanding’ to the features of the school which will help our students to realise their full potential and lead happy lives.  So far, we have been looking at school clubs, an alumni association, opportunities for work experience, help with CV writing and a number of other aspects of this concern. Our growing Sixth Form reflects our ambition, and we were happy to see so many students go on to university or other challenging career paths in the summer.
