Role of Governing Body

The Governing Body works with the Head Teacher and creates a clear understanding of the challenges faced in managing the school. The governing body's role is to question and challenge. A good working relationship is essential as a real critical friendship is only achieved where there is trust and mutual respect.

The Governing Body sets the general direction of the school, looking at how it should best develop and improve. This is done by reviewing and agreeing policies, setting targets and priorities and monitoring and reviewing aims and objectives.

The Governing Body has a professional attitude and uses their collective skills to benefit our learners. It gathers views, asks questions and decides what is best for the school and the children.  They hold full meetings each term and assign specific tasks and responsibilities to individual governors as listed below. We hold a general meeting each term, which covers strategy, buildings/finance, personnel and curriculum. We also hold a  separate meeting each term which has a  specific focus on Finance and Buildings.
