 The purpose of having a Governing Board is to

  • help the school to set high standards by planning for the school's future and setting targets for school improvement
  • keep the pressure up on school improvement
  • be a critical friend to the school, offering support and advice
  • help the school respond to the needs of parents and the community
  • make the school accountable to the public for what it does
  • work with the school on planning, developing policies and keeping the school under review
    exercise its responsibilities and powers in partnership with the head-teachers and staff
  • not intervene in the day-to-day management of the school unless there are weaknesses in the school, when it then has a duty to take action. 
All maintained schools have a duty to publish certain information online.  Please find below details about:
