Our focus is on continuous school improvement and by law, we have three main strands to our role:
To Provide a Strategic View

What are our long term aims, how will we achieve them and how, as governors do we know how effective the school is?

To Act as a Critical Friend

We promote the school and support its work by monitoring and evaluating the school’s effectiveness.

To Ensure Accountability

Governors are the “responsible” body and it is our job to be accountable to pupils, their parents and carers and all other stakeholders, for the decisions we make as a governing body and for the academic and personal developmental progress our pupils make. It is also our role as governors, to hold the school to account, on behalf of the stakeholder groups of whom we are representative members.
