What do the Governors do?

The role of the governors is to provide support and challenge to the school so that the school is well led and managed in order that every child can reach their potential.

How do we do this?

We do this through regular meetings with the school leadership. There are Full Governing Body meetings once a term, and sub-committee meetings which focus on particular areas:

  • Curriculum & Community : to look at what is being taught and how; the attainment and progress made by pupils ; how the school promotes a safe environment and how the school engages with our community.

  • Finance, Staffing and Premises : to ensure that school finances, staffing and premises are managed appropriately and safely.
