School Governing Body

The Full Governing Body meets six times per year, once each school term with an additional meeting each year in term 2 to finalise the School Development Plan. Our Finance and General Purposes Committee also meets six times per year, once each school term.  Governors also carry out regular monitoring visits throughout the school year. Working parties are convened on a temporary basis as and when necessary to address particular issues.


Full Governing Body Aim

Benhall governors work in partnership with the Headteacher & school staff to promote high standards of educational achievement. Through our three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluation, we aim to ensure our school provides an exciting environment where pupils enjoy learning, feel safe and secure and can achieve their full potential.
