The governing body has a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. Its responsibilities include but are not limited to: 

  • setting targets for pupil achievement
  • managing the school's finances
  • making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based
  • appointing staff
  • reviewing staff performance and pay
  • ensuring the premises are safe and providing a stimulating environment

The governing body should act as a 'critical friend' to the Headteacher by proving advice and support, and by asking challenging questions.


You can contact the Chair of Governors via the school office.
