Information from Governors

What does a governor do, and why you should be interested. 

The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. (NGA)

Governors carry out three key functions-

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

So governors have a substantial impact upon our school, and we are very happy to be challenged on anything we say or do.

Although recently highlighted by Government, Beenham Primary School has been focusing on British Values for many years.
This page explains how our approach meets, and fits within the Government expectations.
