The role of the Governing Body
Our membership is made up of parents, staff, members of the local community and governors nominated by the Local Authority. Together with the Head teacher and Senior Leadership Team, governors are responsible for making sure the school provides outstanding education for all children.
We work together to make decisions on the overall direction of the school and set policies, targets, development plans and more. We also decide how to make the best use of the school budget for the benefit of the children’s education.
As governors we work as a team, deciding on things jointly and sharing responsibilities for the decisions we make.
The Full Governing Body meets six times a year. We receive reports from the Head prior to each meeting and gain an overview of the school’s development. The bulk of the Governing Body’s work is done by our three committees: the Children, Families & Curriculum committee, the Personnel, Finance & Resources committee and the Admissions Committee which each meet regularly throughout the year.
How can you contact us?
The Governing Body has a range of legal responsibilities, so being a governor is an important commitment and new governors should be willing to attend training to help them learn what is entailed. If you would like to know more about the governing body or may be interested in becoming a governor please contact either the Headteacher or Chair of Governors through the school office.
All governors are volunteers and do not receive any payment for their work, however they do play a vital role in the running of the school. Being a governor is demanding and challenging but extremely rewarding.
We have two vacancies. Please ring the school office if you’re interested.
