Our Governing Body
A message from our Chair, Fred Lightfoot
School governors are regularly described as ‘critical friends’ to the school, which is a helpful phrase in understanding what they do.
They respond to any recommendations that arise from the inspection regime and ensure that they are put in place. They also come into school to see what is going on in the classrooms, taking responsibility to monitor areas of the curriculum such as English, Maths and Science, working with staff to ensure that children realize their full potential. They are also responsible for ensuring that the school is well led, well maintained and kept within budget, therefore they scrutinize the performance of the management team. the upkeep of the building and also the school’s financial position.
