The Governors of the school are like a Board of Directors. They oversee what the school does and makes sure that it is working effectively and meet at least twice a term at school.

Parents can contact the Chair of Governors directly by leaving a message at the school.

Governors are appointed to support the school and ask questions about how it is working.

In addition they…

  • Monitor standards of teaching and learning
  • Interview and select staff
  • Decide how the school budget is spent
  • Look after the school building
  • Help the school contribute to the community
  • Review the head teacher’s performance

School governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They act together for the good of the school, but cannot act individually.
