Management and Development of SES Boarding
Members of the SES Governing Body take a keen interest in the development of boarding and visit all Boarding Houses at least annually. One governor has a specific responsibility for boarding, and liaises with the Head of Boarding and Houseparents as required.
The Principal has overall responsibility for boarding at the Endowed Schools, leads its development and has meetings with the staff involved as appropriate.
The Heads of each School play an active part in all aspects of boarding and have an overall responsibility for the welfare of the boarding students in their care.
The Head of Boarding meet at least termly with the SES Housemasters/mistresses to develop SES boarding and to discuss common issues.
The Houseparents are responsible for the day-to-day running of their Houses and for the management and review of the staff who work with them. All the staff involved in boarding are encouraged to attend CPD courses run by reputable organisations such at the Boarding Schools’ Association, the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate, HMC and GSA, as well as other pastoral courses. A list of relevant courses attended by current staff is available on request.
Houseparents and the Head of Boarding are also responsible for ensuring that all necessary records are maintained and monitored as appropriate.
