Role of Governors - Every Child Matters
Every school has a governing body, whose role is similar to that of the board of a company or the board of trustees for a charity. Governors are the strategic leaders of schools and have a vital role to play in ensuring every child gets the best possible education. Governing bodies have a statutory role and responsibility to raise academic achievement and promote pupil welfare. Governors support, encourage and challenge the headteacher and staff. Our core strategic functions are :
- ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school
- holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance of staff
- overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
We aspire to the happiness, enthusiasm and enjoyment in learning for every child, a strong sense of community and collective responsibility for actions, outcomes and impact and a culture of high expectations. 
The school has identified priorities for improvement next year which will move the school closer to realizing our ambition. Special focus will be given to 
* Embedding the new curriculum and assessment 
*Strengthening middle leadership
* Narrowing the gap for SEN and vulnerable pupils
* Sustaining high standards within a broad, balanced and active curriculum in a nurturing environment as outlined in our School Development Plan
*INSET for teachers on working at greater depth
*Improving active play times
*Securing outstanding child protection and security procedures at all levels of the life of the school
