The Governing Body

The Governing Board is a group of elected volunteers who form part of school's Leadership and Management.

The remit of the governing board is strategic. Through questioning, critical friendship and support they hold the leadership to account for the school's direction and outcomes.


They have three distinct roles:

1 To hold the headteacher to account for the vision of the school.

2 To ensure financial probity and value for money.

3 To offer support, scrutiny, and challenge to the school leadership in pursuit of improvement and performance.

The Full Governing Body meets termly.
