Board of Trustees

The Board at Clive School is entrusted to work on behalf of all stakeholders and is accountable for the school’s performance. It emphasises strategic leadership, sets the vision for the school and ensures that it complies with legal and policy requirements.

Policies are at a governance level and outline clear directions for the Principal to follow. Board policies are its guiding principles and rules for the management of the organization and provide the boundaries for management’s internal actions and their relations with outsiders. Board policies should reflect implementation and practice of the organizations values, beliefs and culture. Board policies should reflect compliance with legislation and regulations and customs of the country. The policies should be clear in terms of defining the way the board, management and employees are expected to act.

 The board and principal form the leadership team with the role of each documented and understood. The Principal reports to the board as a whole with committees used sparingly and only when a need is identified in order to contribute to board work. The board is proactive rather than reactive in its operations and decision making and does not involve itself in the administrative details of the day to day running of the school.
