Governors

The governing body is responsible for working strategically with the school to ensure a good quality education. They make key decisions like
appointing the head teacher, and decisions which directly affect the direction of the school and well being of the children. School governors can really make a difference in improving standards throughout the school.

 

The expectation of individual governors is to focus on raising standards to help every child achieve their potential, get to know the school and
become involved in school life and activities, and respect the professional expertise of the Head Teacher and Staff.  All new governors will
attend an induction course and follow on-going training and development for their individual roles. 
 

The Governors lead and manage the school.  Our three key functions are:

 

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;  
  • To hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent. 

 

The Governing body meet at  FGB (Full Governing Body) meetings.  There are also two sub committees - P&S (Performance and Standards) and  Resources.
