A Compassionate Learning Community
Our Governors work with senior leaders in the strategic development of the school and in raising standards of achievement. Duties include monitoring the teaching and learning aims, approving the school budget and appointing the Head Teacher. Our Governors both support and challenge the Head Teacher, they must gain an understanding of the school’s overall performance in order to explain its decisions and actions. They do this by attending regular meetings, carrying out school visits and meeting with the schools senior leaders. Governors work as a team and make collective decisions. If you are interested in becoming a school governor, please contact the Clerk to Governors by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning the school on 01273 605700.
