Governors are volunteer members of the wider community who work closely with the Headteacher and staff. Their role is to hold school leaders to account for the wellbeing and progress of its pupils.
Ysgol Sant Baruc's Governors sit on "The Governing Body" or "Board of Governors" – a combination of teaching staff, parents, local politicians and skilled professionals.
