Meet The Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

Our Governors meet regularly and copies of the minutes of the Full Governing Body meetings are available on request from the school office or email clerk@winterbournevalley.dorset.sch.uk

 

As a Governing Board our core functions are:

1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
2. Holding the Executive Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
