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’.
