Shelton Junior School Governors- What we do

The governing board provides strategic leadership and accountability at Shelton. It has three key functions:

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

One of the ways we do this is through carrying out regular monitoring visits to school.
