The Governing Body

We are pleased to welcome you to the governors’ section of the site. We hope it will give you an insight into who we are and what we do. Bayards Hill Primary School is an academy managed by The River Learning Trust. Each school within The River Learning Trust is managed by its local governing body and the Senior Leadership Team of the school.

Working in partnership with the Headteacher and staff, governors ensure high standards of achievement for the children in the school. We focus on strategy and school improvement; we decide what we want the school to achieve, set priorities and monitor progress to realise these aims. We have three core strategic functions delegated to us by The River Learning Trust Board:

  • Setting the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school, within the context of The River Learning Trust
  • Holding the Headteacher and senior staff to account for the educational performance of the school and its children
  • Ensuring the school remains within the budget delegated by The River Learning Trust and making sure the money is well spent

The latest minutes from full governing body meetings are available on request.

Details about the River Learning Trust Board can be found here: https://www.riverlearningtrust….
