 What do we do?

We make collective decisions as part of the Local Governing Board. Our main purpose is to help raise the educational standards and performance of Stebon by supporting the work of the Headteachers and school staff. We ensure that the school runs effectively, that quality teaching and learning is happening across the school.

We make decisions on how the school is run and are answerable to parents, the wider community and most importantly the children who attend Stebon. We govern rather than manage giving direction and focus. The management of the school remains the responsibility of the headteachers. We are responsible for:

  • Determining aims and priorities for Stebon
  • Monitoring and evaluating the work of the school and setting targets
  • Ensuring high levels of attendance and good standards of pupil behaviour
  • Ensuring that all children in the schools have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, suitable to age, aptitude and ability, which prepares them for adult life
  • Ensuring the health and safety of pupils and staff

We meet 3 times annually, once each term.
