Ofsted says about Ben Jonson: ‘This is a harmonious, welcoming and inclusive school.’ We couldn’t agree more!

Governors

School governing bodies are responsible for working strategically with the school in ensuring a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school’s aims and policies as well as carrying out a number of other important duties.

Governing Bodies have three main roles:

  • To provide strategic direction for the school
  • To act as a listening ear/support/guidance role to the Headteacher and the school team
  • To ensure accountability

In effect, Governing Bodies are like the Executive Board of a company with the Headteacher having the role of the Managing Director, responsible for the day to day management of the school. Each governor brings their own individual strengths and skills to the Governing Body.
