The purpose of a governor is to contribute to the work of the governing body in ensuring high standards of achievement for all children in the school.

The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

set the aims and objectives for the school
set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
The headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body.

We hold Full Governing Body meetings every half term. Two sub committees meet ahead of the FGM to focus on School Improvement and Resources.
Governors also visit the school during the day to meet with staff and to visit pupils in the classrooms.
