The local governing body is accountable for the school’s overall performance – though the school is run on a day to day basis by the headteacher.The local governing body has had many powers delegated to it from the South Northamptonshire Church of England Multi Academy Trust (SNCEMAT*). Governors of this school work closely with the headteacher to set the overall direction and aims of the school and to monitor our progress. We act as a ‘critical friend’ to the school offering a balance of support and challenge. Our responsibilities include appointing the head and other senior staff, overseeing the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced, has strong British Values, is broadly based and that the school set challenging targets for pupil achievement (academic and non-academic). We value the advice and support provided by The National Governors’ Association (www.nga.org.uk), which is an independent charity that aims to improve the educational standards and well-being of children and young people through supporting and promoting outstanding governance.Read our Newsletters to Parents here:11.11.16 Governors Letter to Parents *For more information about how we work with SNCEMAT, please see the separate section on this website.
