Blueberry Park School Governors
The Governors are responsible for making sure the school provides good quality education. Together with the headteacher, we set the school aims and policies.
Every school has a governing body. It normally includes:
- Parents elected by other parents of children at the school.
- Citizens appointed by the local authority.
- Members co-opted from the community.
- School staff, including the headteacher.
What does the governing body do?
The governing body:
- Is accountable for the performance of the school.
- Plans for the school's future.
- Selects the headteacher.
- Makes decisions on the school's budget and staffing.
- Makes sure the National Curriculum is taught.
- Decides how the school can encourage pupil's spiritual, moral and cultural development.
- Makes sure that the school provides for all its pupils, including those with additional needs.
- Has a strong commitment to the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs (and no faith).
Councillor Barbara Murray (Chair)
