Governors

The role of the Governors


Thomas Barnes Primary School's Governing Body is responsible for ensuring our children achieve their very best whilst at our school. 

The role of the governing board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the head teacher ("a critical friend")

 

The full Governing Body meet three times a year and we have two sub-committees who focus on Curriculum and Finance. Governors regularly visit classrooms to observe learning and talk to teachers about their practise. 

We are committed to providing an excellent environment for all pupils to enjoy during their time at our school.
