Governing Body

In general, school governors have three main roles:

  • To provide strategic direction for the school
  • To act as a critical friend to the Headteacher
  • To ensure accountability

They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • Determining how the school’s budget is spent
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Setting standards for pupils’ behaviour and discipline
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school’s aims and policies

For further general information about the activities of School Governors and School Governing Bodies, please visit the following websites:

Our governing body meets once a month with meeting minutes published on the school website once they have been formally agreed at the next meeting.

One of the roles of the governing body is to oversee how the school budget is spent. To assist with this responsibility, we use the Schools’ Financial Benchmarking tool to compare our spending with schools of a similar type, size and catchment. Click Here to go to this benchmarking site.
