Governing Body

All schools have a governing body to support the headteacher and staff.  They are accountable to their stakeholders for the school's overall performance and for decisions they have made.

They have a strategic role in the promotion of high standards and set targets for educational achievement. Amongst other things they also manage the school's budget, including determining the staff complement and making decisions on staff pay.
