Governors

Gravenhurst Academy is a thriving village school that offers your child an excellent start to their education. Through our ethos of growing together, learning together we achieve good academic standards and our dedicated, hard working staff are committed to ensuring each pupil is given the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Early years learning provides the essential foundations as your child begins their long educational journey and we believe there is no better start than at our school.

 

 The role of Governors

Governors are the people responsible for overseeing the work of the school acting as a critical friend and working closely with the School Leadership Team to advise and guide the school. Governors are responsible for setting and monitoring budgets, staff recruitment and retention, formulating and reviewing the School Development Plan and ensuring that all legal responsibilities and obligations are met.

Governors are all unpaid volunteers who come from a wide section of community. Elected parents, staff, co-opted members of the local community and political representative of the Local Authority. It is rewarding and worthwhile work and if you feel you have something to offer and are interested in becoming a school governor please contact the school office for more information.
