The governing body of Quainton Church of England School is made up of five members from the local community and we have different professional backgrounds. We are all very passionate about the school and the children. We are highly involved in school life and actively seek to promote the broader aims of the school in the community.
- Strategic decision-making
We work closely with the Senior Leadership Team and are involved in all strategic decision-making for the school.
We are fully accountable for our decisions and are compliant with the government’s statutory requirements. We have a highly robust system in place to evaluate the effectiveness of our work and will take action if necessary.
- Balancing challenge and support
Using our own professional expertise and the challenge and support approach, we help the headteacher succeed in the key areas of teaching and learning within the school.
