The Governors at Greenhall are responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. They act as a ‘critical friend’ to the Headteacher, supporting, challenging and representing different parts of the school community. The Local Governing Board works in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the Trust.

‘Governors hold leaders to account for all that they do. They have an excellent working knowledge of the school and participate in a range of activities to help them understand how provision can be developed further. Governors have considerable experience and specialist knowledge in areas such as education and safeguarding. They are well aware of their statutory duties and leave no stone unturned.’
