About the Governing Body

Who do the Governors represent?
In short, the school. We are drawn from the various groups that have an interest in the successful running of the school, Parents, Teachers, the Local Authority (LA) and the wider Community.

What is our role?
Governing body responsibilities include:
- Setting strategic direction, objectives, targets and policies
- Reviewing progress against the budget, plans and targets
- Approving the school budget
- Acting as a critical friend to the Head Teacher by providing both support and challenge

How do we do this?
- Through dedicated work of four sub-committees - Finance, Premises, Learning & Teaching and Personnel
- Through regular meetings of the Governing Body and review of reports and activity
- By working collectively with the school to achieve the best educational outcome for the pupils

How do we operate?
The School Governors meet twice each term as a full Governing Body. Between times, smaller committees meet, focusing on the details of specific areas. Details of the members of each committee and their attendance at meetings can be found HERE.
