Aims and Duties of the Governing Body

 

The Governing Body’s aim is to ensure that all our pupils “have the best possible education, tailored to their needs, interests and aptitudes.”  Accordingly, the Governing Body strives to safeguard the effectiveness and efficiency of the school while seeking continuous improvement by:

  2. Adopting policies to attain the set aims and objectives.

The Governing Body facilitates the above by:

 

  1. Contributing towards the development of a shared vision and goals for the school.
  2. Investing in the training and development of the staff and governors.
  3. Emphasising enquiry, reflection and discussion of the school’s performance on a regular basis.
  4. Promoting the active involvement of pupils, parents and the wider community in the life of the school.
  5. Ensuring that the school is a community in which everyone is able to learn.
