The Governing Body has to make sure our school meets the needs of every child so they achieve as well as they possibly can.

Together with the headteacher, members of the Governing Body:

  • agree how the school grows and improves (strategic development)
  • make sure children learn and achieve to their best ability (accountability)
  • check the work of the school (monitoring and evaluation)
