Our Governors

The school governors are all volunteers and come from various backgrounds. Their main role is to support the Headteacher and staff to ensure that Graveley Primary School continues to be a successful and happy school. 

The main role of the governing board is a strategic one, and its key functions are to:
– Set the aims and objectives for the school
– Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
– Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
– Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives 
– Be a source of challenge and support to the Headteacher 
– Monitor the financial aspects of the school 

The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing board.
Minutes of governor meetings are available at the school on request. Please email: nancy@graveley.herts.sch.uk
