Our Governors

The Department for Education has a good web page that sets out the remit and responsibilities of the governors, it can be found here.

Governors work with senior leaders in the strategic development of the school and in the standards of achievement. Duties include setting the school's vision, aims and objectives, approving the school's budget and appointing the head teacher. The Governors' Code of Conduct outlines the duties and responsibilities expected by Brighton & Hove LEA, whilst the Diocese also have a Code of Conduct for foundation governors of a Church School.

Governors must both support and challenge the head teacher, so they need to gain an understanding of the school's overall performance in order to explain its decisions and actions. They do this by attending regular meetings, carrying out school visits and meeting with senior leaders.

Governors also attend training in order to keep up to date with the requirements of their role. Governors work as a team and make collective decisions.
