Information about Governance

The role of a school governor is a demanding but very rewarding role. School governors are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. We work closely with the Senior Leadership Team and staff of the school.


The Local Governing Body (LGB) meets as a whole at least five times a year, and is focused on setting the School’s values, vision and strategic aims, agreeing plans and policies and making creative use of our resources.  The role of the governors is to provide the best possible education for their pupils by: 


  • Monitoring and evaluating performance and acting as a ‘critical friend’ to the headteacher to support and challenge them in managing the school.

  • Ensuring that the school is accountable to the children and parents we serve as well as to the staff we employ, the local community and RET. 


Our Governors are all volunteers and are willing to use their individual skills to collectively support the work of the school. Each member of the Governing Board attends LGB meetings and are responsible for monitoring their particular area and feeding back to the main body.


If you are interested in becoming a school governor or finding out more about the role, please contact the school in the first instance.
