Welling School Local Governing Body (LGB)

The Governing Body of Welling School aims to support the ethos of the schools and wider community in educating outward-looking learners who will thrive in their own lives and contribute to make the world a better place.

We will achieve this through both an active involvement in the daily life of the schools where appropriate and by working closely with the Schools Senior Leadership Teams:

  • To set challenging aims and objectives with the schools and support the schools in achieving them.
  • To agree policies, priorities and performance targets in order to accomplish these objectives.
  • To look for evidence that these objectives are being achieved and challenge where appropriate.

The Governing body will always act in the best interests of the Academies and its pupils.   We will be prepared to explain clearly our decisions in an open and transparent way to staff, parents, pupils and others in the wider community.  We will be united in a common vision for the schools shared by the Headteacher’s in promoting the highest possible academic standards.

The Governors will act as a cooperate body, with integrity, objectivity and honesty.
