Governing Body – Norbriggs Primary School
Why be a Governor?
School Governors make a positive contribution to the education of the children at Norbriggs Primary School. We want the best for the children, and our decisions support the Head and staff in bringing that about. We represent the different groups of people who are stakeholders in the school.
What do we do?
We act as a critical friend for the school. We want to challenge the school, but support it in doing its best.
We give the school its strategic direction.
We set the aims and objectives of the school, and monitor progress towards those aims and objectives.
We agree the policies which underpin the running of the school.
We regularly monitor and evaluate the progress the school makes towards its aims and objectives.
