The role of Pristine Provate School’s Governing Body is to provide vital leadership and to ensure that the school is well-run by management and that sustainable outcomes are delivered. The board comprises of the schools founders and owners who collectively act as stewards to ensure PPS supports the most promising opportunities for its students. The focus of our governing board is to establish the strategy for the principal and school management so as to provide the best education possible for every student at our school.

The core functions of the board of governors is:

  1. Setting strategic direction within the context of a clearly-stated vision and ethos;
  2. Holding the senior leadership team accountable for the achievement of strategy and running of the school;
  3. Overseeing the overall educational performance of the school and suggesting ways for improvement;
  4. Overseeing the financial performance of the school – this includes setting fees, budget oversight, and achieving financial targets.

International research and school inspection results have shown that good school governance has a positive impact on school performance – where governance is good, standards of student attainment are likely to be higher. This is reflected in Dubai and throughout all member countries of the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

A school governing board acts as a critical friend to the school, challenging the status quo and setting expectations.
