Governance

The governors are volunteers from all walks of life who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education by supporting the school. The governors work together as a body to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction and that the school delivers a good quality education by holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school. They ensure and oversee the financial procedures of the school, making sure money is well spent.

At Sir Robert Hitcham CEVAP School there are 12 members of the governing body made up of representatives from St Mary Magdalene Church, Debenham (foundation governors), the Local Authority, the parent body and the staff body. The majority of the governors are foundation governors.
