What Our Governors Do

The main tasks of the school’s Governing Body are:

To provide strategic direction for the work of the school.
To support the work of the school as a critical friend.
To hold the school to account for the standards and quality of education it achieves.
The Governing Body meets 4 times a year, focussing on the school’s strategic plan as well as monitoring policies.

The governors at Marshland are very proactive and take a great interest in school life. They support the school but also challenge it. Governors invite regular feedback from parents and students on how the school is run.
