The role of our governing body is to ensure that our School delivers a good quality education. Together with our Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set our School's aims and policies.

Key roles of governors:

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

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

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

The Governing Body of Westminster City School meets at least once each term and committees meet more frequently. In the academic year 2019-20, the committees of the Governing Body included: Admissions, Discipline, Marketing and Partnerships, Quality of Education, and Resources. Governor attendance is updated annually to coincide with the adoption of the annual financial statements (usually November each year).
