The role of the Governing Body

The role of the Governing Body is to promote high standards of educational achievement. We do this by:
• Providing a strategic direction for the work and improvement of the school
• Supporting, monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of the school
• Ensuring accountability for the standards achieved and the quality of education

Standards of Governance

Governors are aware of the obligations and responsibilities that their roles bring and are constantly looking to improve the quality, standards, efficiency and effectiveness with which they fulfil these responsibilities.
