What do we do?

Governors work as a team (the Governing Body) in partnership with the Headteacher to promote continuous improvement in the school’s performance.

 We are responsible and accountable for major decisions about the school and its future such as:

  • setting the school's values, vision and strategic aims;
  • monitoring and evaluating performance;
  • setting budgets;
  • ensuring that the school is accountable to children, parents, staff and the wider community.

When do we meet?

The Governing Body have termly visits to talk to parents and carers.

We also have two committees: Resources and Standards, which meet twice a term in the evenings. Some governors have additional responsibilities for particular areas of school business such as child protection, looked after children and health and safety.

Dates of our meetings are always advertised in the school calendar.  Minutes of the Governing Body meetings can be requested by emailing: admin@myattgarden.lewisham.sch.uk
