' Governors are supportive of the school and share the headteacher's ambitions for its pupils.'
Our governors are representatives of the church, the Diocesan Board of Education, the local community, parents and staff. They bring to the school a wide range of inetrests, knowledge and skills.
The main aim of the Governing Body is to help raise standards of achievement, support the work of the school and ensure that pupils receive a high quality education.
The day-to-day management of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and staff. Working alongside these senior leaders, the governors are there to help shape the school's future direction and focus.
Governors work as a team and hold powers and responsibilities collectively. The full governing body also has legal duties and powers and all governors share in that corporate responsibility.
Governors are at the heart of how a school operates and whole school achievement rises significantly when this role is carried out effectively. They support and challenge their Headteacher by gathering views, asking questions and help to decide what's best for pupils.
The task can be divided into three main roles - providing a strategic overview, acting as a critical friend to the school and ensuring accountability.
Parent governors are elected by other parents. When a vacancy arises on the governing body for a parent governor, the Clerk to the Governors will write to parents inviting nominations.
