The governing board provides strategic leadership and accountability in schools. It has three key functions:
Governors set the aims and objectives for the school and set the policies and targets for achieving those aims and objectives. They monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making and act as a source of challenge and support to the headteacher. In action, this means:
Governors and trustees must be prepared to adopt the Nolan principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
The Governing Body is a group of volunteer representatives who, alongside the school's leadership team, set the strategic direction for the school.
Our Governing Body comprises largely of representatives of the local church and parent governors.
