What do we do?

We work closely with the Headship team and staff to drive improvement in standards, ensure the safety and wellbeing of pupils and staff and deliver the best possible opportunities for every child to achieve their potential.


The School Improvement Plan is the backbone to the work we all do together.  Click here for a Summary of the School Improvement Priorities for 2016-17.


Our role is to provide a strategic overview, ensure accountability and constructively challenge and support how the school and its resources are managed.  We carefully monitor progress and attainment.  We agree targets, policies, priorities and budgets.
