Where Learning is An Adventure


School Governance

A Committed and Talented Team of Governors

Every school has a governing body, whose role is similar to that of the board of a company or the board of trustees for a charity.  Governors, which includes the headteacher are the strategic leaders of schools and have a vital role to play in ensuring every child gets the best possible education.  Governing bodies have a statutory role and responsibility to support & challenge the school to raise academic achievement and promote pupil welfare.  

Governors support, encourage and challenge the headteacher and staff.  

Their core strategic functions are:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction,
  • overseeing the headteacher's capability to manage and lead,
  • overseeing the school's educational and financial performance.

The Headteacher presents a report at each Governing Body meeting, commenting on the life of the school in general and progress in relation to the targets laid out in the school’s development plan.​​
