Being a school governor is an enjoyable, stimulating and rewarding experience.  It is an opportunity to work with other governors and the Senior Leadership Team of the school to develop an understanding of school management issues, the well-being of the children and staff, as well as be involved in the life of the school.

The Governing Body’s Role is:

  1. Setting strategic direction of the School
  2. Holding to account – the Governing Body is responsible for holding the headteacher and senior leaders to account for the quality of teaching and learning, pupil progress, behaviour, health and safety
