Our Governing body has a strong focus on the three core strategic functions within Henbury:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  2. Holding the headteacher to account for the education performance of Henbury View and its pupils.
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of Henbury View and making sure it is money well spent.

Our governors are accountable for:

  • The quality of education provided
  • The use of public funds
  • The wider contribution to the community
