Our Governors are the strategic leaders of our school and
play a vital role in making sure all our children receive the best possible
education.

Their three core functions are:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

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

  • Determining how the school’s budget is spent
  • The appointing and dismissing of staff
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Forming policy on the school’s curriculum
  • Setting standards for pupils’ behaviour
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school  policies
