The Governors of Great Bedwyn School work with the Headteacher and the senior leadership team to provide the strategic direction for the school.
Our role is to ensure that the children receive the very best education that we can provide.
We don’t get involved in the day-to-day operation of the school, but set the criteria by which the school is managed. Governors both support and challenge the Headteacher and senior staff to ensure that the school performs as well as it should and that all pupils have the very best opportunity to learn & grow.
We have two sub committees – Finance and Premises coupled with Staffing and Curriculum. These Committees meet prior to each Full Governing Body to discuss the array of issues that need addressing.
We all come from very different backgrounds and are always looking for fresh faces to join us. If it is something that you want to know more about then please contact the school office and one of us will make contact.
