GOVERNING BODY

Silverdale School, like all schools, has a Governing Body.

We meet six times a year: three of those meeting are focused on our regular business, and our other three are focused on learning in detail about various aspects of school life.

The minutes of our meetings are public documents and are available on request via the school office.

GOVERNORS' MISSION STATEMENT

Silverdale is an Outstanding School with a culture of partnering for success. We believe that every pupil should be enabled to reach their potential and be equipped to achieve the future they deserve.

WHAT THE GOVERNORS DO

The Governors have three main roles. We are the key strategic decision making body for the school and help to set the long term strategic vision and ethos. We also decide the priorities that will help us achieve that vision We hold the Headteacher and senior leaders to account. We expect that they will promote excellent educational standards in school, and find ways to improve the performance of the school year on year. We are responsible for the financial performance of the school and for making sure that the money entrusted to us is well-spent in the best interests of the students.
