The School Governing Body

Strategic Role: working with the leadership team within the school, the governors agree and recommend areas for improvement and development. We ensure that strategies, policies and procedures are in place to meet these developments. These are then documented in 'The School Development Plan'.

Monitoring & Support: we monitor the performance of the school against the School Development Plan by attending meetings and asking questions, receiving reports and other key documents and by visiting the school. We celebrate the successes of the school.

Accountability: the Governing Body has responsibility to oversee the performance of the school.
