Charfield School

School Governance

The Governing Body has a statutory responsibility to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school and its curriculum.

The responsibilities of the governing body can be summarised as providing strategic management, providing support and challenge and ensuring accountability.

The day-to-day management of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher.   As Charfield is an Academy, the Governing Body is accountable to the Board of the Castle School Educational Trust Board (CSET). 

Specific responsibilities include:

  • Promoting, monitoring and evaluating the standards of education and achievement
  • Planning the school's long-term future in conjunction with CSET
  • Setting the school's aims and values
  • Budgetary allocation and monitoring
