Meet the Governors

CROESO! Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Members of the Governing Body work with the Headteacher on a voluntary basis to strategically manage the school in partnership with the local authority. They are a corporate body consisting of unpaid volunteers with a duty to act in the best interests of the whole school, and they work diligently as a collective for the benefit of the pupils. This academic year our priorities are:

 

1 To To continue to develop a whole school approach to support the well-being of the school community

 

2       To use effective pedagogical principles when implementing the school’s new curriculum  

 

3       To ensure the school’s assessment arrangements help meet the needs of ALL pupils and adhere to the            requirements of the new Curriculum for Wales

They are expected to:- 

  • Agree the aims and values of the school

  • Approve the School Development or School Improvement Plan
  • Approve and monitor the allocation and expenditure of the school budget
  • Make sure the national curriculum is taught and there is sufficient staff to teach it
