Complaints, Governance and Policies


School governors are responsible for planning the school's future direction and can thereby help raise the standards of pupil achievement. Governors are also accountable to parents and their wider community for the performance of the school.

General information about the work of a school governing body, a guide to the laws affecting schools and governors, and advice on how to become a school governor may be found by using the link below.
