Our Governors

Remit of the Governing Board

The Governors are responsible for 3 core functions:

  1. Setting the strategic direction
  2. Holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and
  3. Ensuring financial health, probity and value for money.

 What does the Governing Board do?

Governors are responsible for a number of areas including attainment, finance, policies and procedures.  Their role involves working closely with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure children get the best possible education to enable them to reach their full potential, in an environment where they feel safe, valued and where learning is fun.

 Their main functions are to:

  • Help set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Help ensure the policies and procedures are relevant and achieve their objectives
  • Set targets to monitor the progress of the school to ensure it is meeting its aims and objectives
  • Be a critical friend to the school and provide a source of challenge and support

Full Governing Board meetings are held termly. The approved minutes are held in the school office and available for anyone who wishes to read them. We also have a Finance, Premises and Safety Committee and Pay & Performance Management Committee who report to the Governing Board.
