Governing bodies work with the Head Teacher and staff to help ensure that the school provides the best possible education for all the children. The Governors are responsible for overseeing the school budget, the quality of education and curriculum and the leadership and management of the school. Governors are drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and bring their skills and knowledge and experience to their roles. The Governing Body is accountable to the Board of Trustees who are responsible in law for the governance of all the schools within Lingfield Education Trust.
