Governors

Monks Orchard Primary School’s Governing Body is made up of volunteers and school staff. The governing body is the school's accountable body. The governing body are strategic decision makers and vision setters in the school, and working together with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team (SLT), are fundamental to a school’s success.

Governors are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in driving up school and pupil performance and ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education. Governors have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
