Our Governors

The Governing body is responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, the governors set the school’s aims and policies.

 Key roles of governors:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • To ensure accountability for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and ensure value for money.
  • To support and challenge and undertake the role of ‘critical friend’.
They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:
  • Determining how the school’s budget is spent.
  • The employment relationship with staff.
  • Hearing appeals and grievances.
  • Forming policy on the school’s curriculum and other activities.
  • Setting standards for pupils’ behaviour and discipline.
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe.
