Governors

The Role of the Governing Body

The Governing Body, forms a key part of every school and works closely with the head teacher, staff and local authority. It oversees the strategic leadership of the school, providing support and challenge to help the Head Teacher in moving the school forward and ensures that the school functions well in terms of standards, staffing, curriculum, premises and finance.  The school has the following committees:  Pupils & Strategic Development; Personnel & Finance; Standards.

Membership of our Governing Body

The School Governing Body elected to reconstitute under the School Governance Regulations on Monday 28, July 2014. This decision means that they are now able to appoint more people on the basis of the skills they bring.  The Governing Body now consists of four co-opted Governors, two elected Parent Governors, one elected Staff Governor, one appointed Local Authority Governor and the Head Teacher.
