Governors

What do governors do?

The school is part of the Diocese of Chelmsford Vine Trust having become an academy on 1st August 2017 and whilst the Vine has a board of directors who are responsible for all the schools in the trust, our governors are responsible for the governance of our school, setting the annual budget, contributing to the school improvement plan and providing support for the teaching staff in a variety of ways. The governors play an important role behind the scenes in monitoring standards and contributing to the ambience of the school.

Just as teaching and learning are inspected by Ofsted, so too are the governors and the role they play in holding the school to account.
