The Shade Governors

The Local Governing Body (LGB) together with the Headteacher and senior staff, forms the school Leadership and Management team, and share responsibility for the school. The LGB hold the school to account for the standards it achieves. It must ensure that all resources (including the school budget and staff) are properly used to meet the needs of all children and provide value for money. Governors help to form the School Improvement Plan and are responsible for monitoring all aspects of its effectiveness in terms of outcomes for pupils.    

The LGB appoints the Headteacher, and delegates responsibility for the day to day running of the school.

Members of our LGB are also Directors of Staploe Education Trust and other governors sit on Trust committees, such as Risk and Audit and Infrastrusture.
