What is a Governing Body?

The Governing Body is a group of unpaid volunteers who support the Headteacher in running the School.  We meet regularly to discuss children’s progress and results, acting as “critical friends” to the Headteacher, in order to improve the School’s performance.  This means that we challenge the Headteacher by asking important questions, in order to help pupils achieve their full potential.  We help the Headteacher manage the School’s budget, by ensuring that money is spent on improving outcomes for our pupils.​
