Governors

Governors

All Governors are volunteers and play an important role in setting the strategic vision for Rossett. They work with the school on planning, developing policies and school improvement. Governors also keep in touch with the local community to help guide the school to meet the community’s educational needs and also explain to the community what the school is trying to achieve for their children. Governors exercise their responsibilities and powers in partnership with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team and also act as a critical friend, offering support and advice.
