Welcome Message


All boards, whether in the maintained or academy sector and no matter how many schools they are responsible for, have three core functions:

1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

2. Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;


3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.


 The governors undertake their role on a voluntary basis. 

Governors who have business or pecuniary interests in the school can be found on the 'An Introduction' page..
