The main aim of the governing body is to maintain and improve its school's standards of education. Its work can be divided into three key areas:
- Setting the school's vision and strategic aims, agreeing plans and policies, and making creative use of resources.
- Monitoring and evaluating performance, acting as a critical friend to the Headteacher to support and challenge them in managing the school.
- Ensuring that the school is accountable to the children and parents it serves, to its local community, to those who fund and maintain it, as well as to the staff it employs.
If you would like to contact any of our governors, you may do so via Mrs. Adams in the school office.
