Strategic Plan


The Role of the Governing Board

The main task of the governing board is to promote high standards of educational achievement and play an instrumental role in school development. Governors are responsible for the strategic management of the school, working to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

They are required to carry out a number of other important duties, including:
Managing the school's budget
The appointing and dismissing of staff
Forming policy on the school's curriculum
Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline
Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies


The governors operate an open door policy and are more than happy to discuss any matters regarding school life.
Parents are welcome to contact the chair of governors direct or via email at the following address:
