    Our Governing Body

    Our Governing Body

    Welcome to the Governing Body section of our school website.

    What does the Governing Body do?

    The Governing Body is an integral part of any school structure and together with the Headteacher and senior staff, we form the school leadership and management team.  The Governing Body works with the Headteacher and school staff to make sure we provide high quality education for all our students and constantly strive to improve. However, the Governing Body does not make day to day decisions about how the school is run; this is left to the experts – the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team.  We own the school land and buildings and employ all the staff who work in the school.  This includes the Headteacher and we delegate responsibility to him for the day to day running of the school.

    The Governing Body helps shape the vision and direction of the school and ensures that it fulfils its legal duties. Governors are expected to have a good understanding of the strengths and any weaknesses of the school so that the Senior Leadership Team can be challenged and supported. We help to form the School Improvement Plan and are responsible for monitoring all aspects of its effectiveness in terms of outcomes for students.    We ensure that all resources, including the school budget and staff, are properly used to meet the needs of all students and provide value for money. 

    At Cheshunt School we are fortunate to have committed and able Governors who are able to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their roles.
