Introduction from the Chair of Governors

The Governors act as champions for the school.  They have three main areas of responsibility.

1 –  “To help shape the vision and direction of the school”

We visit the school regularly when we observe lessons, talk to subject managers and talk to the children.

2 –  “To ensure the school fullfils its statutory duties”

We review policies and check all our legal requirements are fulfilled.

3 –  “Challenge and support the school leadership team”

We read reports, attend two full governing body meetings a term, we ask questions and ensure that the school is always moving forward.
