Role of Governors at our school
The Governors of James Wolfe School have three main roles:
They are responsible, along with the Head teacher for the strategic direction of the school.
The governing body is accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community.
They act as a ‘critical friend’ using their expertise challenge and support the school to improve.
Governors can be contacted via the school office. Place any communication in an envelope marked Governors and we will ensure it is passed to the Chair of Governors.
