The role of the Governing Body

As governors, our over-arching aim is to ensure that the children in our school are able to achieve to the best of their ability.

Our school governors come from every walk of life, but we all have the same role and responsibilities within the governing body and are charged with acting in the best interests of the children in the school.

The role of the governing body is a strategic one. The governing body is responsible for the conduct of the school, and must promote high standards of educational achievement.


  • Establish the school vision and set the purpose and aims of the school within an agreed policy framework.
  • Appoint and performance appraise the Headteacher.
  • Agree the school improvement strategy, which includes setting targets with supporting budgets and staffing structures.
  • Monitor and evaluate the work of the school by reviewing performance, policy effectiveness, progress towards targets and the overall effectiveness of the school improvement strategy.
