Governors

Welcome to the Governors' Section!
 

School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Principal, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

 

Governors have three main roles:

 

  • To provide strategic direction for the school

  • To act as a critical friend to the Principal

  • To ensure accountability

     

    They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

 

  • Determining how the school's budget is spent

  • Hearing appeals and grievances

  • Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship

  • Setting standards for pupil behaviour

  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe

  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies

  • Staff recruitment and retention

     

We are incredibly fortunate to have a fantastic team of governors who have a real energy, enthusiasm and desire to help provide our children with the best possible education.
