School Governors have an important strategic role and play a key part in developing and monitoring school life. As part of their role they are responsible for financial matters relating to the school budget, as well as:
- Ensuring that good educational standards and practices are maintained.
- Focusing on the achievement of pupils and the quality of the curriculum.
- Asking challenging questions as part of their role in monitoring and maintaining standards.
- Monitoring and advising on policies for Sex Education and Religious Education
Governors' Meetings are held on a regular basis throughout the year and cover a wide range of issues. The main agenda items focus on reports from the committees (Standards & Curriculum, Finance & Resources and Russell House) and the Headteacher's Report, plus other aspects of their statutory duties.The Governors contribute fully to the discussions and decisions relating to the strategic vision for the school, and bring a variety of perspectives to these debates. They ensure that the Headteacher is fully held to account in a robust way as a critical friend.
