What we do and why.

 The Governing Body of King Street Primary School has a strong

focus on its three core strategic functions:

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

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

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

 

We hold our aims close to our heart at King Street, they are important to us – and we would hope they would be important to you, if you chose to be part of our family.
