WHO IS WHO?

ROLE OF THE GOVERNORS

Together with the Senior Leadership Team the Governing Body sets the direction for the school and decides how the school’s budget should be spent. Governing bodies make decisions collectively on matters such as performance targets, school policies and the school’s improvement plan.

 

Governors monitor the impact of policies and oversee the use of the school’s budget. They report to parents on the school’s achievements and respond to inspection recommendations. They hear appeals from pupils and staff and consider complaints.

 

Governors provide the Senior Leadership Team with support and advice, drawing on their knowledge and experience. They ask searching questions and respect the Senior Leadership Team’s position as professional leaders of the school.
