Return to Governors

What we do

We have three key roles:

  • To be strategic and this includes planning the school’s future direction
  • To act as a critical friend, supporting the head teacher and working with all staff to decide how the school can encourage pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
  • To be accountable, in particular for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community

The Governing Body was reconstituted in September 2017 and now works co-operatively on all decision making. If needed nominated govs or pairs are asked to work on specific tasks, they will then report back to the full Governing Body.

Term of office is 4 years.
