The Governing Body

The Governing Body
Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The Governing Body’s role is a strategic one, and ours consists of a variety of stakeholders with the requisite skills to collectively hold the school to account.

The Governing Body’s core functions are to ensure high standards of achievement for all children by:
  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school , ensuring probity and value for money.
                                                  The Governing Body 2017-2018

We are currently in the process of updating our school website, we will notify you of our allocated school governors once our new website has been published.
