Governors

Welcome to the Governors' Page

 

The Governing Body are a group of volunteers who work alongside the Head Teacher to support in the strategic leadership of the school.  Members are voted onto the Governing Body by their representative groups.  Each Governor can then stay a member for four years.  Much of the work of the Governing Body is around the strategic leadership of the school which means we support the school leadership team in making both good financial decisions and also making sure that decisions about children's education are good.  We track the progress of the school which means we look at how well our children are performing in their education.  We also look at how well our teachers are teaching and support school leaders in helping them to get better.

 

Much of our work is divided across three committees which meet once every term.  Each Governor is expected to visit the school once a team for monitoring.
