Our Governors

The school’s governing body is consists of eleven volunteers whose main responsibility is to set the strategic vision for the school and promoting high standards of educational achievement.

 

The Local Governing Committee holds the school’s leaders to account for the quality, standard and effectiveness of the teaching and learning. Through the Local Governing Committee, the school is accountable to Bridge Academy Trust, the parents of the pupils and to the wider community.

 

The Local Governing Committee is also responsible for ensuring that the school fulfills its legal obligations, for the provision of the curriculum, staffing, the social care and development of the pupils, and other statutory requirements such as developing school policies, setting targets, managing performance and so on. It is also responsible for evaluating the progress of the school, making sure that effective monitoring is taking place and making strategic decisions on the basis of this evaluation.

 

Governors are most useful to the school by being supportive yet challenging. If the governing body gets the balance right it can both support the school and promote its improvement effectively.

 

Meetings

The Governing Committee meet at least once a term, with one of these meetings often devoted to moving forwards the strategic vision of the school.
