Governors work as a team. They are responsible for making sure the
school provides a good quality education for all pupils. Raising
educational standards in school is a key priority. This has the best
chance of happening when there are high expectations of what pupils can
achieve. Governors promote effective ways of teaching and learning
when setting the school aims and policies. They do this together with
the head teacher, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of
Governing boards are accountable to parents, the local community
and the Local Authority. Appointments are for three or
usually for four years. The governing board's main role is to help raise
pupils' standards of achievement.
"The effectiveness of the governing body has been improved. The new chair of the governing body leads a very committed team. Rigorous recruitment processes have led to the governing body being at full strength and having a wider range of skills."
