Governance

Kantor King Solomon High School is a Voluntary Aided comprehensive school whose Foundation body (the United Synagogue) appoints the majority of the governors and determines the ethos of the school.  As a modern orthodox Jewish school, we are able to use faith criteria in prioritising pupils for admission (subject to the National Admission’s code). However, we welcome students from all other faiths.
 
As a Voluntary Aided school, we remain largely (but not exclusively) state-funded and follow the national curriculum. We have developed our curriculum to provide high quality education within a learning environment based on distinct British and Jewish values.
 
Our Governing Body is made up of 14 governors under 5 categories as follows:
 
2 Staff governors – elected by the school’s teaching staff, one of which is the Head Teacher;
 
8 Foundation governors – appointed by the United Synagogue;
 
1 Local Authority governor – appointed by Redbridge Council;
 
2 Parent governors – elected by parents of children who attend the school;
 
1 Co-opted governor – co-opted by the governing body to fulfil a specific role or purpose.
  
Our governors provide strategic leadership and accountability with a collective responsibility to:
set the strategic direction, vision and ethos of the school; 
monitor and challenge the progress of the school in achieving its priorities; 
recruit and performance manage the headteacher; 
exercise employer responsibility for all staff; 
ensure the school meets its statutory responsibilities 
ensure financial probity; 
ensure the premises are well managed; and 
report to the school’s stakeholders.
