Governing Body

The Role of the Governing Body

The governors support the senior management of the school in establishing the strategic direction of the school. We establish the overall direction and aims for the school alongside the headteacher and the staff and at the same time hold the school to account for the progress it is making. However, as our role is strategic we do not engage in the day to day running of the school which is the responsibility of the headteacher and the senior management team.

To function effectively we analyse the wealth of data relating to the school and in our role of "critical friend" seek to offer a balance of "challenge" and "support" to ensure the school moves forward. Our responsibilities include establishing and monitoring strategic direction, monitoring performance, operational probity including overseeing the school's finances, establishing policy that allows the school to run effectively, overseeing Christian ethos, ensuring there is a breadth and balance in the curriculum and setting targets for academic performance and monitoring safeguarding and pastoral care.
