Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
The school governors meet on a number of occasions each term and have an important role in ensuring that all children in the school and all the various working parties are making progress towards targets set down in the School Development Plan (into which they also have an input). The governing body is divided into two sub-committees, the Resources Committee and the Teaching and Learning Committee, which also meet at least once each term. These focus in more detail on Finance and Curriculum issues. The head teacher and other members of the Senior Management Team are also an important presence at meetings.
The responsibilities of the governors is to contribute to the work of the governing board in ensuring high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the school by setting the school's vision, ethos and strategic direction, holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure it's money is well spent. Additionally, each governor has a specific responsibility/link, for which they receive training during the year. They also visit the school. Currently your governors are:
