What do governors do?

Governors have three main roles:

1. Strategic role:  governors are involved in the school development and improvement planning process, allocating resources and in considering the direction, aims and values of the school governors.  The governing body’s focus is on raising the achievement of all pupils.  Governors help to set and regularly review all school policies (eg homework, special educational needs) and seek to ensure that the school meets its targets.

2. Critical friend:  governors monitor and evaluate progress of the school.

3 Accountability:  the governing body must account to the whole school community for the performance of the school, the educational standards it achieves and the quality of education it provides.

The governing body meets every half term.

If you would like to contact a Governor please do so via the Clerk to the Governors through the school office.

Minutes of these meetings are available from the School Office.
