Governors

Welcome to our Governors' section. 

 

Our Governing Body has 3 key roles;

- To provide a strategic direction for the school
- To act as a critical friend to the school, and
- To hold the school to account for the educational standards it achieves, and the quality of education it provides

 

All Governors involve themselves actively in the work of the Governing Body and accept a fair share of responsibilities, including service on committees. Each Governor is attached to one area of the curriculum and maintains regular contact with the staff subject leader. The Governing body meets, in full, at least once every term, as do all the committees.
