School Governors

 

The role of the governing body is a strategic one with three key functions:

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils 
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
