Governors' ambition for the school
The Governing body at Clerkenwell Parochial CE School is comprised of a diverse group of people, all of whom have a deep commitment to the effective running and continued success of the school. Governors advocate for, and champion, every pupil at CPS. They ensure that by being 'critical friends' of the school, each pupil can reach their potential and be secondary-ready by the time that they leave. The governing body is working with the management team to match the expectations of Ofsted's 'Outstanding' grade in order to ensure that no stone is left unturned in giving the pupils the best possible start in life. All governors are determined that beyond academic success, our pupils at CPS have a rich experience in their time with us that fully develops their spiritual, moral, social, cultural, sporting and artistic potential. Governors at CPS ensure that the strong Christian ethos and traditions, going back over three hundred years, are maintained.
