Our Governors

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school’s governors and the work that we do. The Governing Body plays a key role in helping oversee the strategic direction of the school and works in partnership with the Headteacher and Senior Management Team. The main aim of our Governing body is to ensure the delivery of a high standard of education for all pupils in our care.

Our main role is to support the Headteacher and the staff – the phrase often used to describe this role is ‘a critical friend’. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life. The two key documents used for this are the School Development Plan (SDP) and the Self Evaluation Form (SEF). The SDP sets out a three year strategic plan for the school, with targets that everyone works towards and the SEF sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements.

Our legal duties include:-

  • setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
  • approving the school budget
  • reviewing progress against the school’s budget and objectives
  • appointing, challenging and supporting the headteacher

There are several categories of governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. These are Community governors, the Local Authority, Parents, and Staff.
