A new Governing Body has been formed by CACFO UK’s Trustees to replace the previous model of Governance set up by the Local Authority. The new Body held its first meeting on 16 January 2018.

In contrast to its predecessor, the new Governing Body is chaired by a Trustee (Adrian Dennis, who serves as Secretary to the Board of Trustees).

Composition of the Governing is also greatly improved.  It now consists of a range of professionals, a significant number of whom are very experienced and from the field of education.  Membership (as of 22 February 2018) is as follows:

Alderman and Freeman of Croydon, Adrian Dennis Bsc Hons (Chair)

Justina Ilochi MA, MPhil

Roxanne Gleave BA, MA, Cert. Ed

Basil F G Muhammad B. Ed (Hons)

Kehinde Omotayo Bsc, MBA (Lead Safeguarding Governor)

Debra Douglas B.Eng Hons, PGCE

Tamia Thomas (Parent Governor)

Patricia Oliver BA, Cert. Ed (interim Headteacher)

Natalie Milsom MA (Staff Governor)

All Governors are committed to:

ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of CACFO UK Education Centre;

holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the Centre and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;

overseeing the financial performance of the Centre and making sure its money is well spent;

overseeing the Centre’s compliance with standards set out in The Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014, first to meet concerns raised in Ofsted’s 2017 inspection report and then to raise the Centre’s performance in general to ensure that standards are consistently met and with the aim of restoring performance to ‘good’ as previously assessed by Ofsted;

measuring progress and routinely reporting upon compliance to CACFO UK’s Board of Trustees (the Proprietor).

An additional Governor with experience in HR policies, procedures and practice is currently being sought.  Please contact us at 020 8127 4550 if you have such skills, time and commitment, should you wish to be considered for the role.
