Governance of Park Lane International School
At Park Lane we have a strategic and practical approach to governance, which provides opportunities for parents, staff and pupils to play a purposeful and collective role in the school’s development.
The governance of Park Lane International School is based on the following committee structure. Committees 1-5 support the Park Lane Governing Board and influence its decisions.
The Park Lane Governing Board holds 4-5 formal meetings per school year, i.e. usually once per half-term, while each of the five supporting committees meets on a termly basis.
We believe our governance structure is commensurate with the needs and aspirations of our young school and provides sufficient scope for the support, challenge and oversight, and advisory aspects of governance, which are deemed necessary for excellence in governance.
The Park Lane Governing Board (PLGB)
The PLGB consists of the school’s proprietors, the three heads of school, including the Principal, and the Operations Executive. The PLGB is fully accountable to affiliated educational bodies and local authorities on all matters of compliance.
