Governors

What we do

As a Governing Body we are expected to have a strong focus on four core responsibilities:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision
  • To be a critical friend. We offer support, constructive advice, a sounding board for ideas, a second opinion on proposals and help where needed.  But we also challenge, ask questions, seek information, improve proposals and seek to arrive at the best solution for all concerned.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
  • To hold the school to account for the educational standards it achieves and the quality of the education it provides.
