Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

St Barnabas Governing Body is the strategic leader of our school and has a vital legal role in making sure every child gets the best possible education. It has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:


a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;

c. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
