School Governors are an important part of school life and make an important contribution in supporting education in our school.   School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability to our school. They work with the Head Teacher to make tough decisions about finance, staffing and resourcing as well as supporting and challenging the Head Teacher and other school leaders and staff to make sure we provide the best possible education for all our children. 


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.   

Victoria School Governing Body

Wendy Kendall

Chair of Governors

Governors Information and Duties

Dear Parents/Carers

On behalf of the Governing Body, I am delighted to welcome your children to Victoria School. This is a happy friendly caring school where every child is encouraged to be the best that they can be, and we aim to promote high achievement and life-long learning for everyone.

We are very proud of our children and all their achievements. Our school offers a rich curriculum where we believe that education should be life-long, and we embed in our children the skills which they will use for the rest of their life.

Our role as the governing body is to make collective decisions which affect the management of the school. Each governor provides a specific set of skills from their own personal expertise to benefit the governing body and the school.

Our responsibilities as the governing body are to provide strategic management, act as a critical friend, and ensure accountability. Specific responsibilities include, promoting high standards of education and achievement, planning the school’s long-term future, setting the school’s aims and values, appointing senior staff including the Head Teacher and budget allocation and control. The day-to-day management of the school is the responsibility of the headteacher.
