Governing Body

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, school governors are members of a school’s Governing Body. In state schools, and those that are voluntary controlled, they have responsibility for raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and acting as a Critical Friend. 

Our governing body is responsible for, amongst others:

  • Monitoring, raising and maintaining high standards within the school

  • Ensuring accountability in relation to school procedures, pupil progress and overall effectiveness of the school

  • Creating a cohesive link between all members of the school community

  • Ensuring that all policies and procedures are updated and reviewed regularly

  • Ensuring that all statutory information is published on our school website
