Governors

Governors

The school governors work together with the Head and other teachers to ensure that Long Wittenham School provides the best possible education for all our children.  In particular, governors are responsible for:

• The overall direction of the school – including the steps it needs to take to continue to develop and improve.

• The teaching and learning – making sure that the curriculum is broad and balanced and that all pupils are given the opportunities to achieve their potential.

• The school’s finances – making sure that the budget is monitored and the money well spent.
Governors are also responsible for appointing staff, overseeing health and safety and ensuring that the school is inclusive for all pupils and staff.

The governing body is made up of representatives of the parents, community, church, staff and local authority.  A list of current governors can be found below.  Governors can be contacted through the school office.
