What we do:

We work to make sure everything is in place so that children can do their best learning.

  • We agree the overall vision for the school; its strategic direction, its policies, and its plans for improvement
  • We monitor and evaluate the school's work and its pupils' achievements
  • We are accountable for progress at school to parents and the wider school community

We oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

Individual governors visit school to attend parents' events, to inform themselves about progress with specific aspects of the school improvement plan, and to help support the school in a range of ways.  We make strategic decisions about the school as a group at our termly meeting or at meetings of our finance, curriculum, and health and safety committees. These committees  each have an annual programme which includes monitoring performance and improvement, whole school and specific budgets such as Pupil Premium and Sports funding, and reviewing and updating school policies.  

Operational management of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and her staff. We support her in helping to set the overall direction and 'learning culture' of the school, in line with the school's values and aims, and focussed on establishing high expectations, promoting effective teaching and learning, and raising standards of achievement.

Towards the end of the summer term each year we evaluate our performance as a governing body, and its impact. Governors evaluate the performance of their chair. We also publish as a newsletter for parents a concise summary of key issues for governors during the previous academic year, including challenges and achievements which illustrate the impact of our work.  You will see a link to the latest summary at the top of this page.
