A place for learning, caring, sharing and growing together

Governors

What do governors do?

 

School governors are responsible for overseeing the management side of a school :strategy, policy, budgeting and staffing. The three core roles for governors are to:

  • Ensure clarity of the vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the effective and efficient management of the staff.
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school, making sure its money is well spent.

 

We meet together as a full Governing Body once a month to discuss all aspects of school life, supporting Mrs Sammon and the staffing team in the leadership of our successful school.
