Governing Body Membership

The role of the governing body, and its committees,  is to ensure that each child reaches their full learning potential, within a safe, happy and fully inclusive school. The governing body is responsible for overseeing the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school, holding the Headteacher and school leadership to account for all aspects of performance, including compliance with safeguarding and educational statutory requirements. It is also the governing body’s role to ensure that spending decisions made achieve the best value for money in terms of their impact on outcomes for all children at the school.
