Governors are responsible for the strategic vision of the school and for supporting the Headteacher and her staff in achieving that vision. Governors have responsibility for appointing the Headteacher, managing the school’s budget, setting annual targets and monitoring performance against those targets, all in the interest of raising standards of achievement. In addition to these statutory responsibilities, Governors do a wide variety of other things, either through formal committee activity or through personal involvement with the day-to-day life of the school.
The role of the Headteacher is to manage the school and as Governors we aim to support her in doing this. At Deri Primary School we have been privileged for some years to support a very successful school, so that our task is to help to maintain and improve on success.
