The role of our Governors
The Governing Body has a vital role in the leadership of our school. The governors work together with school leaders to:
- ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
- oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is spent in line with school priorities
Governors act in the role of ‘critical friend’ to support and challenge the school.
The Governing Body’s role is strategic; it does not get involved with the day to day running and operational management of the school; responsibility for this is delegated to the Headteacher.
Minutes of meetings and further information are available from the school office.
Please see below for a list of individual governor roles and responsibilities.

“Our love should not be only words and talk.
No, our love must be real.
We must show our love by the things we do.”
