Governors of Thorndon CEVCP School

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school’s governors, and the work that we do.

Our main role is to support the Headteacher and the staff – the phrase often used to describe this role is ‘a critical friend’. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence so as to provide the best teaching and learning experience for the children of our school.

Our legal duties include:

  • setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
  • approving the school budget
  • reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives
  • appointing, challenging and supporting the headteacher

Our Full Governing Body meets twice every term. We also have committees meetings to look at particular areas, (for example, performance management, curriculum and health and safety) and updates are provided at the Full Governing Body meetings
