What we do:
The governing body has an important part to play in raising school standards through its three key roles:
- setting strategic direction
- ensuring accountability
- monitoring and evaluating school performance
We have responsibility together with the leadership team for agreeing the policies for the general running of the school. Our role is crucial:
- We fulfil statutory duties to ensure that the school is a safe, healthy and an inclusive environment
- We provide support and challenge to the leadership team of the school on all issues that affect the learning and welfare of our pupils
The governing body is drawn from the staff of the school, the Local Education Authority, parents and the wider community that our school serves. The usual term of office is four years but many governors stand for re-election and serve more than one term.
