Governors

What Do Governors Do? 

The governing body's main aim is to help raise standards of achievement and make sure that the school provides a good quality of education. The day-to-day management of the school is the responsibilty of the headteacher and staff. Rather than manage, governors are there to help shape the school's future direction and focus. 

The three main responsibilites of every governing board are:

  1. Setting the school's vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
