The Governing Body meets once a term. Minutes of these meetings are available from the school office. School policies are available on request from the school office. The Governor email address is: governors@ashwell.herts.sch.uk or they can be contacted through the school office.

What do Governors do?

The DfE states that all governing bodies have three core functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  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
