Following our successful conversion to an academy, under The White Horse Federation, the governors have set the following objectives in line with the school improvement plan for 2018-2019:
- Monitor standards and the quality of teaching and learning, offering support and challenge where needed.
- Support and challenge the SLT so that their actions are effective.
- Monitor the impact of introduction of values-based education on learning and behaviour.
- Assess the impact of improvements to the learning environment and monitor if they reflect high expectations around school.

The White Horse Federation Local Board of Governance
Each school has its own local governing body (LGB). The chair of each LGB will also sit on a collective group of similar chairs, from which one representative will be elected and then co-opted onto the executive board. This process will be repeated every two years, thus affording new chairs the opportunity to be similarly elected.
TWHF executive board has clearly identified the areas of responsibility that they delegate to the LGBs. Although not in any way legally responsible, and not itself accountable for the statutory functions, the LGB has an important role to play in assisting the school to operate effectively in line with the wishes of TWHF executive board as communicated to the LGB.
