Code of Conduct

The Governing Body has responsibility for determining, monitoring and keeping under review the broad policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates.

We recognise that the Headteacher is responsible for the implementation of policy and internal organisation and management of the school, and the implementation and operation of the curriculum.

We accept that all governors have equal status and that every governor’s role is to govern the school in the best interest of pupils, not to represent the interests of the community from which they are appointed.

We have no legal authority to act individually, except where the Governing Body has given us deleted authority to do so.

We will encourage open government and shall be seen to be doing so.

We will consider carefully how our decisions may affect other schools.
