Governors

Our Federated Governing Body

Governors are a voluntary body of people who guide and support the strategic direction of the federation. They are members of the federation team and their contribution to the running of the federation is highly valued.

 

Federated Governing Body

The instrument of government states that the governing body shall consist of:

  • 2 parent governors
  • 1 local authority governor
  • 1 staff governor
  • 1 headteacher
  • 2 co-opted governors

 

The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Set the aims and objectives for the federation
  • Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the federation is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
