Governing Board 2019-2020

Our School Governing Board

Governors are a voluntary body of people who guide and support the strategic direction of the school.  They are members of the school team and their contribution to the running of the school is highly valued.

 

The instrument of government states that the Governing Board shall consist of:-

  •  3 parent governors
  • 1 local authority governor
  • 6 co-opted governors
  • 1 staff governor
  • 1 headteacher

 

The role of the Governing Board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
