Governors are responsible for making sure the school provides a good quality education for all pupils. Raising and maintaining educational standards in school is a key priority. They do this together with the headteacher, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school.
The governing board provides strategic leadership and accountability. It has three key functions:
Governors set the aims and objectives for the school and set the policies and targets for achieving those aims and objectives. They monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making and act as a source of challenge and support to the headteacher.
Governors serve a term of 4 years. Their roles and responsibilities, including committee membership, are decided upon annually.
