Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

 

The role of the school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community. School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. The Headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school and staff.

 

The Governors main roles include:

  • To provide strategic direction for the school
  • To ensure accountability how the school's budget is spent
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship
  • Setting standards for pupil's behaviour and discipline
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies

 

The full governing body meets each term.

In addition we have committees for Resources (Finance, Personnel, Buildings & Sites, Health & Safety), Standards and Effectiveness, Admissions, Performance Management and Pay,Nursery and Extended Services. The details of our governing body are as follows:
