The Role of Our Governors


Our Board of Governors is made up of parents, members of the community and staff. Some governors are elected and other governors are appointed. However, all governors are responsible as a corporate body to all stakeholders: parents, the children, the staff, the community and the Local Authority. Governors are all volunteers and are not paid for their work.


The full Board of Governors meet termly. Some of its responsibilities are delegated to committees which have their own meetings. These sub committees cover Finance, Premises/Health and Safety and Safeguarding, Curriculum and Target Setting and Personnel.


School governors make collective decisions as part of the Board of Governors whose main function is to help raise the educational standards and performance of our school by supporting the work of the headteacher and staff. 


The main roles are:


1 - To set the vision for the school

2 - To hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school

3 - To ensure financial security for the school
