The Governing Body plays a key role in the life of Burlington Juniors, providing the strategic direction for the school and supporting the staff, pupils and parents in ensuring that the best possible provision is in place.

The governors are very supportive of the school not only attending regular meetings but also scrutinising documentation, visiting the school, approving policies and acting as critical friends.

The full governing body meets regularly, at least once a term. In addition there are committees that meet to discuss and develop specific areas of the school.
