Governors mission statement

It is our job to support and challenge the school in its aim to maximise its pupils’ potential in all subjects as well as to prepare them with the skills they will need to cope with a fast-changing and complex future. 

Aims: to assist and provide support to the school in its mission to be even more than an outstanding school, with an equally aspirational governing body. To work closely with and be a ‘critical friend’ to the Senior Leadership Team

Equality statement: 

To celebrate our cultural diversity and an understanding of all the groups within it. We see all learners and their parents and carers as of equal value: • whether or not they are disabled • whatever their ethnicity, culture, national origin or national status • whatever their gender and gender identity • whatever their religious or non-religious affiliation or faith background • whatever their sexual identity. 

Linking Governors to subject areas. Governors are linked to specific subject areas. We believe this is an excellent way of giving individual governors a regular opportunity of seeing the ‘school in action’ while expanding their awareness and knowledge of each important area in greater detail. 

Meet the Governors

"Meet the Governors" sessions run during parent evenings. They are an opportunity to chat to governors as well as to raise any issues, positives or ideas parents might have. All issues raised are reported back to the head or governing board as appropriate for discussion and action where necessary.
