The Governing body plays an important role of overseeing the management side of the school including strategy, policy, budgeting and staffing. The Governors work alongside senior leaders to ensure clarity and vision of Anfield Road Primary.
“Governors share senior leaders’ vision and commitment to improvement. They know their school well because they visit regularly. Governors gain a deeper insight into what is happening in school by asking probing questions about the impact of leaders’ action on pupils’ progress and outcomes. They receive detailed information from a variety of sources, including external quality assurance professionals and pupils’ feedback. Governors use this wealth of information to effectively hold leaders to account for their decisions.”

They are committed to the school and undertake relevant training to keep their knowledge and skills up to date. The governing body ensures that the school gives value for money and that decisions about spending are taken in consideration of the main priorities for school improvement. Governors meet their statutory responsibilities.”
