School governors are a vital part of our school and this is your opportunity to join the governing body and be able to support the school to provide the best possible education for its pupils. 

The governing body … 

  • sets the strategic direction, objectives, targets and policies
  • reviews progress against plans and targets
  • acts as a critical friend to the head teacher by providing support and challenge 

The governing body has a strategic role as opposed to operational role. This helps the governing body focus on their key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability, and monitoring and evaluation to promote school improvement and raise standards and achievement.
