351On behalf of the governing body I would like to welcome you to the Governors’ pages.

The work of the governing body is wide-ranging, with responsibilities spanning financial management, pastoral care of children, and buildings and grounds. Our focus though is to ensure all pupils achieve the highest possible standards, and we do that by:

  • providing a strategic overview, setting policy and working with the headteacher to agree the school’s development plan and maintain a focus on raising standards;
  • acting as critical friends to the school, supporting the senior management team through our experience and knowledge, and providing challenge through monitoring and evaluating the school’s effectiveness;
  • being accountable for the provision of good quality education in the school.

If you want to discuss any school matter with me, please contact me via the school or at my school email address:
