Governors

    The role of our governing body is to ensure that the school 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.

    Key roles of governors:

    • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
    • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
    • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

    They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

    • Determining how the school's budget is spent
    • The appointing and dismissing of staff
    • Hearing appeals and grievances
    • Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship
    • Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline
    • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
    • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies

    The Governing Body of Westminster City School meets once each term and sub-committees meet more regularly. There are governors sub-committees for: discipline, curriculum, personnel and finance & buildings.
