Governors

Governors work with the headteacher and senior leadership team in the strategic development of the school and in raising standards of achievement.

Duties include setting the school’s vision, aims & objectives, approving the school budget and appointing the headteacher.

They must be able to support and challenge the headteacher, so need to gain an understanding of the school’s overall performance in order to explain its decisions and actions. Governing bodies work as a team and make collective decisions. Please see our Governing Body information leaflet for 2019 and 2020 below. A link will be provided soon - in the meantime please feel free to email the school on admin@royalspa.brighton-hove.sch.uk with any questions you may have.
