Governing Body

 

Governors are appointed, elected or co-opted for a fixed term. The Governing Body is made up of representatives from the staff, parents, community and members nominated by the local authority. The Headteacher is also a governor.

The Governing Body supports, guides and works in partnership with the Headteacher to focus on the school’s strategy for excellence and continuous improvement. Our Governing Body is comprised of a diverse group of local people with a range of experiences and expertise. The full Governing Body meets at least four times a year with much of the work of the being carried out in termly sub-committee meetings. These include:

  • Resources and Planning Committee which oversees buildings and grounds, Health and Safety, finance, staffing issues and the overall development and forward planning of the school
  • Standards, Teaching and Learning Committee which meets to discuss aspects of what is taught in school and results

We have an active governing body who work closely with the Headteacher and staff and their responsibilities include: the general conduct of the school; the appointment of staff; the school environment and the welfare of the children and staff; the curriculum; setting and monitoring the school’s budget; contributing to the School Development Plan; and monitoring the overall effectiveness of the school.
