Governors
____________________________________________________________________________________

GOVERNING BODY OF SYDENHAM SCHOOL as of September 2017

Our Governors are representatives of the local community, parents, school staff and the Local Education Authority. They bring a range of interests, knowledge and skills to the school and they all work in a voluntary capacity. They have responsibility for overseeing the strategic framework of the school including setting policies, approving the curriculum and overseeing the school budget.

The Governors support the Headteacher and give feedback, recognising and celebrating achievement, identifying where the school is not achieving as well as it could, and providing support and encouragement when exploring ideas for improvement. The Governing Body works as a team with shared responsibilities - Governors never make decisions on their own, nor do they act as individuals
