Governors

The bottom line for any school governing body is to improve education for every child at their school.

“In all types of schools, governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

a.       Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

b.      Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

c.       Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.”

Lord Nash, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools.

All the governors at Burghfield St Mary’s school give their time voluntarily and are very happy to explain what they do and how the governing body works. If you would like to contact them please ask at the school office in the first instance
