Our Governing Body
The Governing Body of H3 Federation (which oversees Haverstock school) includes two parent and fifteen co-opted governors, a local authority governor, one staff governor and the Executive Headteacher (total 20 governors).
Together the role of the governing body is to help shape the overall direction and character of the school, monitor progress and standards, review and approve the budget, appoint and support the headteacher and senior staff, review policies and procedures and ensure the school fulfils its statutory duties.
The key priorities for the governing body this year are: raising attainment and achievement for all students; improving behaviour to learn, steering the school through its financial challenges, and developing the school culture and ethos.
The governing body meets regularly, and non-staff governors also visit the school, making contact with the different departments and attending events and performances. The governing body welcomes contact with all those involved in the school and will be happy to hear your views on any matters of concern please email us (see Contact Details - H3 Federation Governors page).
Diversity is important and our governing board should be increasingly reflective of the communities we serve. We are in the process of collecting our governing board diversity data (in Summer 2023) with a view to publishing this information here so that it is widely accessible to members of the school community and the public.
The full governing board is chaired by Alison Lowton. In addition to their membership of the full governing board, governors are members of one of the following committees:
- Students Committee – chaired by Sarah McMorrine
- Staff, Resources & Safeguarding Committee – chaired by Andrew Heffernan
