Governors

The Role of Governors

In all types of schools, governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:


1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
2. Holding the headteacher to account for the education performance of the school and it's pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure it's money is well spent;


The school has a very supportive Governing Body. Several Governors help regularly. Two Governors are elected from amongst parents of children at the school. These are currently Michael Heywood and (vacancy). The Chair of the Governing body is Canon David Wyatt, Rector of Saint Paul the Apostle, Paddington, Salford

'Governors know the school well and are fully involved in ensuring pupils' good achievement.' Ofsted 2014
