What we do
The Role of the Governors
School governors are people who make a positive contribution to the school community by acting as "critical friends". They support and challenge the Headteacher to promote continuous improvement in the school’s performance. They also play a monitoring role asking relevant questions such as "Is it working?", "How do we know it is working?", "As a School, how can we get better?" Governors need no formal qualifications but bring a range of experience to help our school to achieve its vision.
Although they are volunteers, they are professional, committed and passionate about what the school does. Governors generally meet twice a term and visit the school regularly.
Our Current Priorities
The governors and staff of The Hills are committed to providing the very best quality education for children. Underpinning this is a commitment to continuous improvement through a cycle or target setting and review which is set out in a detailed and rigorous School Development Plan. This identifies our priorities for the year and drives our self-review and staff appraisal process. This is a live document that is constantly updated, and the priorities are set at the start of each academic year at our Governor Strategy Day.
