All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.
The Governing Body works in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the local authority. Whilst the Headteacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.
The governors are responsible and accountable for ensuring that the schools discharge their statutory duties under the law. They ensure that the leadership and management of the school have appropriate plans and resources in place to deliver a high quality and effective learning experience for all our children, whatever their age ranges and ability, so that every child can achieve his or her full potential.
