In addition to each of the committees that our Governors serve, many also have further responsibilities to deeper their understanding of aspects of school policy and practice. For example: many Governors are assigned areas of the curriculum where they work in partnership with our staff curriculum leaders, or are responsible for supporting or overseeing areas such as Collective Worship, Pupil Premium Funding or Safeguarding in collaboration with the staff. The challenge that our Governing Board gives to our leaders is to ensure that the best possible provision is made for each of our children.
