Carleton Community High School School Governance Committee

Executive School Governance Committee (ESGC) (established on 8 May 2017)

The Pontefract Academies Trust appointed an ESGC at Carleton Community High School from 8 May 2017.  The ESGC was appointed to fulfil all the functions of a School Governance Committee (SGC) and will conduct the school in a way that secures rapid improvement and promotes high standards of educational progress and achievement for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds.  The main function of the ESGC are to:

  • secure governance of the school and in so doing provide a sound strategic base for school improvement.  Teh ESGC is expected to enable the school to have its special measures removed and to enable the development of good capacity for sustained improvement;
  • work to an agreed timeline for the cessation of the ESGC and secure the transition to a strong SGC.  The transition will include the formation of a Shadow School Governance Committee.
