The operation of UTC Swindon will be overseen by a governing body comprised of external members, staff and parent governors. The Board has three core strategic functions –

1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

2.  Holding the Principal to account for the educational performance of the college and its pupils; and

3. Overseeing the financial performance of the college and making sure its money is well spent.

The governing body will meet at least once a term and sub-committees will consider more detailed aspects of the work and advise the Board on decision.

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Angela Barker-Dench
Deputy Safeguarding officers: Hollie Danby, Stacey Cooke
Designated Senior Manager for Allegations: Helen Peace

Link Governor for Safeguarding & Child Protection: Kathryn Saunders
