Governor Pecuniary Interest and Responsibilities

The key role of a school Governor is to contribute to the work of the Governing Body in ensuring high standards of achievement for all children in the school by:

  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Below is a list of the current governor appointments for our school and a link to the National Governors' Association giving further information on the work of governors.
