Our Governing Body has a strategic role in the development of the school. Our key responsibilities are to:
- Provide a strategic view: help to set and maintain the broad framework within which the Headteacher and the staff should run the school. This is part of our three-year strategic plan.
- Act as a critical friend: provide the Headteacher with support and offer advice and information. The Governing Body is there to monitor and evaluate the school’s effectiveness and we’re there to challenge.
- To ensure accountability: the Headteacher and staff report to the Governing Body on the school’s performance. In turn the Governing Body is accountable to all stakeholders on the school’s overall performance.
We aren’t involved in the day to-day management or operational activities of the school – that is the role of the Headteacher and the teaching and learning staff.
