Grange Park Junior School Governors

Grange Park Junior School governing board meets regularly and works closely with the School to ensure pupils are provided with a good quality education in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment.  Governors have the following key roles:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent
