The governors have a key role in ensuring the school maintains its high standards in all areas.  They take part in monitoring activities, working with the children and staff to gain a really clear overview of what is happening across the school.  Through the structure of committee meetings and in school review session they hold the Strategic Leadership Team to account for their work.  Each governor has an area of responsibility which you can find below.
