The Governing Body are group of people who make important decisions about the running of the school. This can include anything from decisions about employing new staff to how to spend the school's budget. Their role is to hold the Principal to account and to ensure that the school is well run and successful. Governors come from all walks of life and share a commitment to the children at Frederick Nattrass.
Each Governor is a Portfolio Holder for an area of academy improvement - this means that they work with the academy leadership team to monitor performance of this area.
