School Governors play an important role in overseeing the management of the school.
The Governing Body and its Committees:
- Plans the school’s long-term future including its aims and objectives
- Sets policies and targets
- Reviews and monitors progress in achieving the aims, objectives and targets
- Promotes high standards of education and care
- Provides support and challenge
- Approves and monitors the schools budget
- Appoints senior staff including the Head Teacher
Governors also spend time in school in their role as ‘critical friend’, observing teaching and learning and supporting staff. This helps them to understand the day-to-day organisation of the school and to make informed decision for future developments. They are also invited to all school events and activities, and participate whenever possible.
Governing Body Business and Meetings
All the business of meetings and monitoring visits are agreed on an annual basis so that everyone is aware in advance of their work ahead, to help them plan and prepare for meetings and visits. The annual planner for 2022/23 can be found here:
Dates for governing body meetings are also agreed ahead and the meetings for 2022-23 are here:
