Grove Park Governors: Our Role
The governing body is accountable for the school’s overall performance – though the school is run on a day to day basis by the headteacher. We 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 and broadly based and setting targets for pupil achievement.
