Role and Responsibilities
School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality of education. Their key responsibilities are:
- To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and for the performance management of staff;
- To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.
Appleby Primary School governing body is divided into two committees, each responsible for a separate aspect of this work. For a more detailed overview of the committee work, please download individual committee reports here – FH&S and T&L.
