Board of Governors

THE ROLE OF THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS

The role of the Board of Governors is to manage the school with a view to providing the best possible education and educational opportunities for all of the pupils. This involves setting the strategic direction for the school and taking corporate decisions in relation to the statutory functions of the Board of Governors.

The Board of Governors has an important strategic role to play in the management of the school. This is to help the school principal and staff, provide the best possible education for all of the pupils. Governors bring their experience, life skills and common sense to this task. In everything they do, they should aim to raise expectations of what can be achieved by all pupils and strengthen the involvement of parents and the community. This involves:

 setting the school's vision and aims;

 establishing and maintaining the school’s ethos;

 setting the school’s plans and policies;

 monitoring and evaluating school performance; and

 promoting self evaluation to sustain school improvement.
