The Governors of St Edmund's School believe it is important that boards reflect the diversity of the school communities they serve.  Diverse boards promote inclusive school environments and provide diverse role models for staff and young people.  The governors are currently collecting data on the diversity of the board, including data on age, gender and ethnicity.  They will use that data to inform their recruitment and training needs and ensure there is always a diverse range of perspectives around the table to support robust decision making.  Due to our relatively small Governing Body we do not publish this diversity data online as individual governors could be identified and we have a legal obligation to protect their personal data.
