The Governors play an active and supportive role in the life of the school. They bring a wide variety of talents encompassing many areas of business and professional life.

The Governors’ role:

  • Together with the headteacher they are responsible for making sure our schools provide good quality education.
  • They provide challenge and support to headteachers, drawing on their knowledge and experience.
  • They make decisions together on matters such as performance, targets, school policies and school development plans.
  • They monitor the impact of policies and oversee school budgets and staffing.
  • They report on school achievements and respond to inspection recommendations.
  • They hear appeals from pupils and staff and consider complaints.
  • They ask searching questions and respect the position of headteachers as professional leaders of schools.
