What do Governors actually do?
One of the children asked us this in a visit and we thought it was a brilliant question!

Our job is to be a 'critical friend' to the Senior Leadership team, both supporting and challenging them (and each other!) to make sure we are all always doing our best for Robert Kett children and families.

A vital part of what we do is monitoring how our strategic plans (SIDP) are going in practice and that we are delivering our vision and ethos.

We oversee the financial performance of the school (School Budget, Pupil Premium, Sports Grant) to ensure that we are getting value for money and that we are spending it where is best supports the children.

We also hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school.  This means we ask challenging questions to the Head and the Senior Leaders to ensure children are getting the best education available at our school.
