Role of the School Governors


The purpose of any school governing body is to ‘Conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’.

As with all schools, our governing body has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
  • Currently the two committees covering Business and Education take place within the monthly Full Governing Body meetings.
