 The Governing Body of The Wallisdean  Federated Schools

Our governing body provides strategic leadership and accountability for the whole Wallisdean Federation. The board’s three key functions are:

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the schools and making sure money is well spent
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the schools and pupils
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

Governors are responsible for setting the aims and objectives for the schools, the policies and the targets for achieving those aims and objectives. Through their visits and committee meetings, governors monitor and evaluate the progress the schools are making and act as a source of challenge and support to the Executive Head Teacher.
