The Governing Body of Highbury Quadrant is made up of Staff Governors, parent governors, local authority governors and community governors. Their role is to set the school’s strategic direction, ensure accountability and act as a critical friend to the school’s senior leaders.
All Governors are volunteers. Parent Governors are appointed via election by the parent community. The Headteacher is automatically a Governor and the LA will appoint their representative. Additional Governors may be Co-opted by the appointed Governing Body. This is done by means of a skills audit which may identify that the school could benefit from additional expertise or experience to achieve specific a aim.
