Fortismere's Governing Body is committed to ensuring we deliver our vision of a world class school which encourages and challenges everyone at Fortismere to achieve their potential.

As the Governing Body, we are responsible for deciding what we want Fortismere to achieve and for determining the strategic framework for getting there. On a practical level, the Governing Body sets appropriate aims and objectives for the school, agrees policies, priorities and targets and monitors progress against those targets.

When we consider and discuss the strategic framework, it is important that we are responsive to and consider the needs of current and future students. We welcome your comments, concerns and ideas on our strategy for achieving the school's vision, and encourage you to contact us either by post or email to We will endeavour to respond to any correspondence within 15 working days of receipt.

The Governing Body is not responsible for the day to day running of the school. That is the Co-Headteachers' responsibility, supported by their staff team. If you have concerns regarding the day-to-day running of the school, please contact the Co-Headteachers or relevant member of the Senior Leadership Team.

On behalf of the Governing Body, I look forward to working with you to help Fortismere become a world class school.

Mark Chapman, Chair of Governors
