Governors



Schools Governing Body are a team of people who work closely with the Executive Headteacher and Head of School to make key decisions to the successful running of the school and ensure that it delivers high quality education.

Governors have several roles.  The three main ones are:

  • to provide strategic direction to the school.
  • to ensure accountability.
  • to act as a critical friend to the Executive Headteacher and Head of School.

Other roles cover determining how the school budget is spent, forming policy on the school’s curriculum and collective worship, setting standards for pupils, appointing staff and hearing appeals.

Governors come from all sections of the community, parents, business management and a host of other skills.  All can offer extremely helpful expertise to the school, work as part of a team and give commitment to the school.  Although the role can be very demanding it is very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your community. 

The Governor leaflet link below details more about the role of the Governors.
