AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY OF SENIOR STAFF

All the members of the Senior Management Team (SMT) have a joint responsibility for teaching and learning within the school and for the creation of a good learning environment. This aspect is an absolutely crucial one. Everything we do as a school is determined by its impact on the educational experiences of our pupils. The SMT liaise closely with subject departments. They also spend a considerable amount of time on monitoring the work of the pupils. Individual members of the SMT also have special responsibilities, some of which are detailed below:
