We bring a wide range of skills and experience to the role, ensuring a balance of business, financial, educational and life skills to support us in making decisions regarding our core functions.

Our core functions are as follows:

Establishing the strategic direction, by setting the vision, values, and objectives for the school and agreeing the school improvement strategy.

Ensuring accountability by monitoring progress towards targets, engaging with stakeholders and contributing to school self-evaluation. We hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school, its pupils, and staff. We professionally challenge and support the headteacher in fulfilling her duties.

Ensuring financial security, by setting the budget & monitoring spending. We aim to ensure that value for money is obtained and that risks are managed. We oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.

We hold seven Full Governing Body meetings a year. Each governor works within one strand of school activity. These strands mirror the four areas of our school that OfSTED Inspects. Each strand also has school professional partners that work with the governors allowing us to ask questions, challenge performance and support all staff and children to improve learning and teaching.
