Who’s Who?

The Governors and Staff of the school

“Governance is effective and governors share leaders’ ambitions and high expectations. Regular visits to school ensure that they have a clear understanding of the school’s current strengths and weaknesses. Governors bring a wealth of knowledge, expertise and commitment to the governing body, and their skills and experience are used well to support school improvement. They have a clear understanding of the way in which performance management is used and its links to teachers’ pay. Governors are trained well in all aspects of safeguarding. They make sure that they keep up to date with current guidance and regularly monitor this key aspect of the schools’ work, so that pupils are safe” (OFSTED 2017)
