What we do:

We work to make sure everything is in place so that children can do their best learning.

   We agree the overall vision for the school, its policies, and its plans for improvement

   We monitor and evaluate the school’s work and its pupils’ achievements

   We are accountable for progress at school to parents and the wider school community

Individual governors visit school to attend parents’ events, to inform themselves about progress with specific aspects of the school improvement plan, and to help support the school in a range of ways.  But we make strategic decisions about the school as a group at our termly meeting or at meetings of our finance, curriculum, and health and safety committees. 

Operational management of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and her staff. We support her in helping to set the overall direction and ‘learning culture’ of the school, in line with the school’s values and aims, and focussed on establishing high expectations, promoting effective teaching and learning, and raising standards of achievement.

We also have a number of specific statutory or legal, responsibilities – such as agreeing the annual budget for the school.
