The Governing Body is responsible for providing a strategic framework for the school’s operation and development, for advising and supporting the Headteacher and staff, for monitoring and evaluating the school’s effectiveness and for providing accountability to parents and the broader local community.
The membership of the Governing Body is designed to provide a cross section of representation, skills and experience in order that the school can be successfully supported.
