All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.
At Pathfield School, the Governing Body works in close partnership with the headteacher, staff, SENtient Trust and the local authority. Whilst the headteacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance.
As Governors at Pathfield School our vision is:
Working together, supporting challenge and making a difference.
