Governance

A message from Andrew Hancy the Chair of Governors.

School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

Governors are responsible for:

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

The full governing body typically meets eight times a year.  You can keep up to date with the governing body news, through the Willoughby Weekly newsletter.  The governing body at Willoughby consists of 12 full governors and 1 associate member.
