The Role of Governor

The three core functions of the school Governing Body are:
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the head teachers to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent  


The Governors work closely with the head teacher in the development of the school. They play an active role in the life of the school and meet regularly to discuss matters relating to the strategic direction, general management and administration. They monitor every aspect of school life and make sure that the school offers the very best experience and opportunity for each child.  Governors are responsible for monitoring the progress of children, the curriculum, the buildings and the budget.  They ensure the school is a safe and healthy environment for all children and are responsible for the implementation of the safeguarding and child protection policies.


Governors meet every term as well as in committees for Resources & Finance, Children and Learning.
