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 and Finance & Resources) 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.
