Governor Register of Business Interests 2019

Governing Body 2019/20

Governors are a voluntary body of people who guide and support the strategic direction of the school. They are members of the school team and their contribution to the running of the school is highly valued.

The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)

In addition, Foundation Governors uphold the Christian values and distinctiveness of church schools.

The current chair of the governing body is Mrs Lucy Vernon.
