Governors

The governing body works with the school. Its responsibilities and powers have to be exercised in conjunction with the Headteacher and staff. Governors do not intervene in the day to day management of the school, unless there is something seriously wrong. If there is a weakness in the school they need to take action. There is a fine balance that is not easy to keep.

Individual governors have no power or responsibility. It is only the full governing body which has legal duties and powers and all governors share in that corporate responsibility.

The day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the headteacher and staff. The philosophy for running the school is a shared responsibility worked out by common consent.

Governors govern rather than manage. They are there to give direction and focus by performing a vital strategic role.
