The role of the Governing body is to help shape the strategic direction of the school and to safeguard the public interest in the school. As our role is strategic, we do not get involved in the day to day running of the school, this is the responsibility of the Head Teacher and the Senior Leadership Team. We ensure that they are accountable for decisions and actions taken. We oversee the maintaining of and improvement of standards of achievement within our school. We are also responsible for ensuring that the schools policies and administration meet statutory requirements and that our children are able to maximise the educational opportunities provided. We support the school in its continuous drive to improve the already high standard of education provided to our children.
