WELCOME TO THE HEREWARD GOVERNORS' SECTION
ROLE OF THE GOVERNING BOARD
The primary purpose of the Governing Board is (in the role of 'critical friend' to the school) to support the Headteacher in agreeing the strategic direction of the school, the proper implementation of statutory requirements and the monitoring and evaluation of the School Development Plan and targets.
All Governors have a “special interest” in a curriculum area. This responsibility requires a visit to the school, by arrangement, to review this area. This adds to the Governing Board’s understanding of the needs and issues within the school and provides a direct link with individual areas of teaching.
Mrs Rita Midwinter
Chair of the Hereward Primary School Governing Board
