The Governing Body is a group of volunteers who want to make a positive contribution to the school. They provide a valuable insight into the local community and the challenges and opportunities it faces. Governors work with the Trust and Staff to create the strategic direction, vision and ethos of the school. They are not involved with the day-to-day running of the school, which is the responsibility of the Headteacher. Their role is to support and challenge the Headteacher and school leadership, and hold them to account.
Governors work together to:
- Make decisions on performance targets, school policies and development plans
- Monitor the budget and make recommendations on how it should be spent
- Promote high standards of teaching and learning
- Monitor pupils’ progress and achievements
Our chair of Governors is Dr Nick Griggs – [email protected]
