School Improvement Board

The School Improvement Board (formally known as the Governing Body) is composed of representatives from the local community, school and parents. As a critical friend, the School Improvement Board offers support, constructive advice, a sounding board for ideas, a second opinion on proposals and help where needed. SIBs are responsible for establishing the aims and policies of the school, setting and implementing the school budget, and ensuring that the curriculum is taught. They set targets for the school and ensure the implementation of these targets. They visit the school regularly and act as a link between parents, the community and the school.


The School Improvement Board welcomes feedback and suggestions from Parents, Carers and other stakeholders. Any correspondence received will be promptly dealt with at the next School Improvement Board meeting and the outcome reported back to respective parents. 


Cherry Orchard Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, SIBs and volunteers to share in this commitment. As such, we insist all SIBs have a satisfactory DBS Enhanced Disclosure.
