Governors

The Governing Board is made up of parent, community and staff Governors.  Working in partnership with the Academy in support of the school’s vision, the Governing Board has three core functions:

  • setting the strategic direction
  • holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school
  • ensuring financial health, probity and value for money.

Governors attend Governing Board meetings every half term and also conduct school visits focused on school improvement priorities and the core elements of safeguarding, special educational and medical needs and looked after children.  The Finance Responsible Officer conducts independent reviews of the financial systems and processes.  School visits take place at least on a termly basis and involve not only receiving progress updates but also seeing the policies, procedures and priorities in action through observations, drop ins, book/work scrutinies, and speaking to staff and students.  See the link governor structure attached below to provide detail on specific governor responsibilities.
