  • Governors

    The governing body exists to provide strong strategic leadership to a school, ensuring accountability for its educational and financial performance.

    The Governance Handbook assigns three core functions to the board:

    • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
    • Holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
    • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

    ANNUAL STATEMENTS OF GOVERNANCE

     In the Ofsted inspection in October 2023, it stated that:

    Governors contribute much to the school's drive for improvement. They know the school extremely well and are very much part of the life of the school. They offer support and challenge in all aspects of the school's work.
