Governors

The Role of the Governing Body
The Governing Body are a team of volunteers who provide support and guidance to the Senior Leadership Team and Staff and is collectively responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school and for monitoring the schools performance.
The Governing Body has three main roles:

  • Strategic    The Governing Body sets the general direction of the Infant and Junior School, looking at how they should best develop. This is done by reviewing and agreeing policies, targets & priorities and monitoring and reviewing aims & objectives.
  • Critical Friend    The Governing Body must work closely with the Senior Leadership Team and create a clear understanding of the challenges faced in managing the two schools. The Governing Body must feel able to question and challenge, real critical friendship is only achieved where there is trust and mutual respect.
  • Accountability    A school is a business and its stakeholders are the pupils. The Governing Body must have a professional attitude and use its collective skills to benefit the pupils. It must gather views, ask questions and decide what is best for the schools. The Governing Body is answerable to parents and the wider community.
