As Chair of de Stafford’s Governing Body, I’d like to introduce you to our Governors and to let you know what our roles and responsibilities are.
We have three core functions:
- To set the strategic direction of the school
- To hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance and the care of the students
- And to ensure financial health, probity and value for money.
We are a dedicated team of volunteers made up of staff, parents, local people, and people nominated by the Local Authority who bring with us a strong and varied skill set, including expertise in primary and secondary education, finance, accounting, health & safety, human resources, and property management. We are committed to raising standards of achievement and ensuring every student at de Stafford receives a high quality education.
Please scroll down on this page for a summary of the make-up of the Governing Body, and look at the "About Us" page for information on our skills and backgrounds.
Should you wish to contact me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
