Governance oversight of TADSS is provided by a member of the lead school’s governing body. The role includes attending TADSS board meetings in a ‘critical friend’ capacity, asking challenging questions, monitoring performance and supporting the work of the Alliance. Verbal reports are then submitted to meetings of the  lead school’s full governing body. David Higham is currently our TADSS Governor (see Who’s Who) and he has a wealth of relevant experience to bring to the role.

Members of the governing bodies of all five TADSS schools are committed to collaborative working, sharing best practice and working together in the full knowledge that we are ‘Stronger Together’! TADSS governors are always welcome to attend as many of the training and other opportunities as they would like to. Governor participation in our Annual Conference, for example, adds a vital dimension to the discussions and planning.
