Governors 2022-2023

Welcome to the Governors Page of the school website.  At our school we have a very committed Governing Body who work actively to help improve and support the school.  We hope you will find the following information about our role, who we are, and how we work helpful.

Our Role

The governing body is accountable for the school’s overall performance – though the school is run on a day to day basis by the headteacher.  We work closely with the headteacher to set the overall direction and aims of the school and to monitor our progress.  We act as a ‘critical friend’ to the school offering a balance of support and challenge.  Our responsibilities include appointing the Head and other senior staff, overseeing the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based and setting targets for pupil achievement.
