The Governors are responsible for the school on behalf of the Members of the Academy Trust.
The Abbey School governors are people from the school’s community who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. We are volunteers who attend meetings and work together to further The Abbey School’s development.
Together with the headteacher we set the future direction for The Abbey School and decide how the school’s budget should be spent.
The Governing body makes decisions collectively on matters such as setting strategic direction, school policies, ensuring accountability, the school’s development plan, and monitoring and evaluating school performance.
The Headteacher provides an Induction Programme and an Induction Handbook to all new Governors prior to their first Full Governing Body meeting.
Links to the Governing Body Designations List and Governor Responsibilities – Themes and Subjects for the current academic year are shown below.
If you wish to contact the Governors this should be by letter addressed to the Chair of Governors and sent via the school office.
