What is the purpose of the governing body?
Our school governing body are responsible for ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction. They also oversee our budget for the financial performance of the school and making sure all money is allocated and spent appropriately. They do this by maintaining close contact with the headteacher and working with the staff to ensure that, as far as possible and practicable, they all have the facilities and resources needed to do their jobs effectively.
