Meet the Governors

Governing Boards have three core functions:

1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school;

2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff;

3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

James Dixon Local Governing Body is responsible for:

  • Reviewing and monitoring school improvement

  • Monitoring and reviewing Progress & Attainment

  • Financial Accountability - Making sure that the budget is on track and money is spent well

  • Reviewing and monitoring the Curriculum

 

The Local Governing Body has formed three committees to help it with these functions: Achievement, Resources (finance) and School in the Community.
