What the governors do

The governing body has the general responsibility for the conduct of the school so that high standards of achievement are promoted. We work closely with Mrs. Cawson, the Headteacher, taking on a strategic role in the running of the school by agreeing aims and objectives, and adopting policies and targets to achieve them. We monitor and evaluate the school progress and, by acting as a ‘critical friend’, challenge and support the school.
