Governors

The role of a governing body

Each school in the country has a governing body made up of a group of people who are from various occupations and backgrounds, this is with a view to them all contributing a diverse range of skills and experiences to the successful running of the school. In general the role of the governing body is to take a strategic role working with the head teacher in the general management of the school, to act as a "critical friend" and to be accountable for the decisions made by it. It is responsible for setting the aims and objectives for the school and agreeing monitoring and reviewing policies targets, priorities and performance. It also, in partnership with the head teacher, controls the school budget. 

How do I contact the governing body or an individual member?

As representatives of the community we are always happy to hear your views on the running of the school. If you wish to speak to any governor please do not hesitate to do so. This can be done by leaving your contact details at the school office.
