The Governing Body is responsible for ensuring that the school provides the best education possible for the children in a safe, happy and secure environment. We oversee school activity at a strategic level and work with Mrs O’Toole and her leadership team to set the school’s direction and identify how the school will develop and improve.
Our main responsibilities are:
- Monitoring the performance and progress of our children,
- Working with the staff to help them teach and care for our children,
- Deciding on how the resources of the school are best used,
- Planning ahead so that the performance of our children and our school continues to improve.
We meet as a Full Governing Body every term and we also have two committees: one which oversees the school’s finances and one responsible for raising standards and achievement. However we tend to meet much more frequently, and many of our governors spend time in school working with staff and making visits to understand more about the day to day life of the school.
We are often around at Parent’s Evening so if you’d like to talk to us about what we do or have any questions please ask – we won’t bite! A number of our parent governors are also on the playground before and after school so you can talk to us there. Alternatively you can always contact us through the office.
