Our Governing Body

 

What do our school governors do?

The governing body is made up of church, parent, staff and Local Authority (LA) representatives. Along with their statutory responsibilities the governing body represent a 'critical friend' to the Headteacher and monitor closely all aspects of the school. Governors do not act independently, decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing body. Governors usually meet twice per term to receive a Headteacher’s report, consider general issues relating to the school and also to receive training on current priorities within school.

The role of the governing body 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)

The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body.

Governors make frequent visits into school to work with both children and staff. Their good work and dedication is reflected in their close working knowledge of our school. Our Chair of Governors is Lynn Stansfield who can be contacted via the school office.
