Local Governing Bodies
The Role of the Local Governing Body
Our Local Governing Bodies work in close partnership with the headteacher, staff and the Academy Trust. Whilst the headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance.
It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.
Governors’ meetings are held once a term and they monitor and evaluate the standards of learning and teaching and the impact that the school has on the children’s achievement and attainment, ensuring they reach the national and locally set targets.
The Local Governing Bodies work closely with the Trustees to ensure that the trust objectives are met.
