BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Our Board of Trustees are responsible for the governance of Westmere School. They meet twice a term and were instramental in ensuring the School Pool upgrade was planned, financed and completed.

Here are some specific things the board does (NZ GOVERNMENT)

  • works with its local community to make sure that the school works in a way that is appropriate for the students, families and wider community that it serves. This is what schools mean when they talk about "the needs and aspirations of the local community"

  • creates the schoool's Charter and Strategic Plan. These describe the board's long term plans for the school and sets goals that will help make them happen

  • monitors progress towards the long-term plan and goals to make sure the things that are happening in the school are going in the right direction

  • monitors and evaluates student progress and achievement to make sure that every student is getting the preparation they need to survive and thrive in the world

  • makes overall decisions about the school's property (grounds and buildings), finances, curriculum (what is taught) and administration. These decisions are often made on the advice of the principal and staff, and are carried out by the principal and staff once they are made.

  • makes sure that the school meets the government's responsibilities under the Treaty of Waitangi

  • makes sure that other government requirements are met - for example, the requirements for the needs of priority learners (Māori learners, Pasifika learners and learners with special education needs) to be identified, planned for and met

  • appoints and supports the principal and assesses their performance

  • is a good employer to its staff. The board employs all the staff including the principal. This means that the board has a responsibility to make sure that the school provides a safe and healthy environment for them all to work in, and obeys the law about employment conditions.
