Formal meetings of the Local Governing Body are currently held on a monthly basis and have followed on from the pattern inherited by the IEB. All business is undertaken at these meetings but there is an unequivocal focus on the core business of the school namely: raising expectations through high quality teaching and learning and accelerating pupil progress thereby raising overall levels of attainment. The key function of the LGB is to:

  • Ensure that there is a clarity of the vision, ethos and strategic direction for Gray’s Farm
  • Hold the Headteacher to account for the further improvement required for pupils progress and attainment
  • Ensure that the school’s money is well spent and financial systems and procedures are secure
