Our Governing Body
What is a Governing Body?
The members of the governing body are the strategic leaders of the school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. The purpose of the governing body is to 'conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement'.
The governing body has a strong focus on three core functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos, and strategic direction for the school
- Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
The governing body members have the experience through their professional capacity to support and monitor the above core functions. Governors are selected and appointed on their skills and experience and training is available to gain new skills as well as to enhance existing ones. On a regular basis we conduct a skills audit to identify any gaps which are addressed.
