Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' Section!
Our school governors make a valuable contribution to children’s education, opportunities and futures. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies. Being a school governor is a challenging but hugely rewarding role.


The Governing Body has three main functions, which are:

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

 

They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • Determining how the school's budget is spent
  • Ensuring that school's safeguarding procedures are robust and effective
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Forming policy on the school's curriculum
  • Setting standards for pupil behaviour
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies
  • Staff recruitment and retention
     

We are incredibly fortunate to have a fantastic team of governors who have a real energy, enthusiasm and desire to help provide our children with the best possible education.
