Meole Brace School

Our Governors

A warm welcome to the Governors’ page of the Meole Brace School website.

We hope this page gives you a better understanding of who the MBS Governors are and what we do to support the school and hold it to account for the quality of education it provides.

Governors are all volunteers and we come from a variety of backgrounds. This means we bring a wide range of skills and experience to support our work. Meole Brace has governors with backgrounds in business, management, Human Resources and law as well as in primary, secondary and further education. Some governors are parents; others, including the headteacher, are members of staff. The Full Governing Body meets four times a year and operates two main subcommittees (Resources and Personnel, and Standards, Curriculum and Welfare) which also meet four times a year. Together they steer and oversee all aspects of school life. For more information on the responsibilities of the Governing Body, please click on the following link:

The governing body is very pleased to have appointed Alan Doust as headteacher. He joined us on September 1st 2018 at what is an exciting time for Meole Brace School. Governors are working to establish the Central Shropshire Multi Academy Trust (CSMAT) with Belvidere and Mary Web Schools.

The three schools in the CSMAT already enjoy good working relationships and we intend to build on these in the future. The Board of Trustees oversees the work of the Trust. Governors believe that MBS will go from strength to strength within the CSMAT, in partnership with parents and other members of the community. We are committed to upholding Meole Brace’s core values and continuing to ensure that all our students have access to high quality education in a safe, supportive but suitably challenging environment. Our priority is to ensure that each student develops their academic, personal and social skills to the highest level they can in preparation for leading happy, successful lives.
