About Us

GOVERNORS

The Governing body plays an extremely important role at Prince William School.

The purpose of having a governing body is to

  • help the school to set high standards by planning for the school's future and setting targets for school improvement
  • keep the pressure up on school improvement
  • be a critical friend to the school, offering support and advice
  • help the school respond to the needs of parents and the community
  • make the school accountable to the public for what it does
  • work with the school on planning, developing policies and keeping the school under review
  • exercise its responsibilities and powers in partnership with the Head teacher and staff
  • not intervene in the day-to-day management of the school unless there are weaknesses in the school, when it then has a duty to take action.

(Department for Education 2011)

All school Governors attend full governors meetings usually held once a term. Governors are also members of one of a number of sub-committees, for example Finance and premises. Governors are also expected to be a visible presence at school events supporting the students and staff through their achievements and successes
