Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

 

The Local Standards Board (LSB) is responsible for monitoring standards and school improvement within their school. They hold school leaders to account and report back to the trustees.
At Roselands Primary School, our LSB meets regularly throughout the school year and governors will often spend time in the school to monitor school improvement and standards at a local level.
"Governors are part of the overall system of school accountability. They have a vital role to play in driving up school and pupil performance and ensuring every child receives the best possible education."
