Sambourne has a team of dedicated governors representing the local community who give their time and expertise freely to support the school. They are responsible for the strategic direction of the school ensuring clarity of vision and ethos. They work with the headteacher and staff to ensure that the children are taught to a high standard and achieve as well as they can in a safe and clean learning environment. They approve policies, are involved in staff appointments and oversee the financial performance of the school to make sure the money is well spent.
Governors visit the school regularly and are involved in many different ways. Governors meet as a full governing body 6 times a year and they are a member of one of two committees which meet termly. The two committees currently are finance and premises and staffing and curriculum. The governors attend training to help them in their role and review their working practices annually to ensure they keep up to date with the latest legislation and national initiatives.
