Old Palace School Governors

The School Governing body is responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the head teacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school’s aims and policies.

Governors have three main roles:

  • To provide strategic direction for the school
  • To act as a critical friend to the head teacher
  • To ensure accountability
