Governing Body

Governors work with the Headteacher, making decisions about how the school is managed.  They meet at least once a term in school and have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. Each governor is linked with a specific year group, class or subject area who invite them to take part in specific events in school.

School Governors are either parents with a child in school, teachers, support staff, local council representatives, community or business people.

The Governing Body is divided into two main committees which meet regularly throughout the year:

Resources Committee 

This deals with financial matters, including producing an annual budget, overseeing fundraising, implementing pay policies, dealing with matters of school security and Health and Safety.

Standards and Effectiveness Committee

The work of this committee covers curriculum issues, academic standards and behaviour in school.

A number of smaller committees meet as required for specific purposes.

These include: Pupil Discipline, Headteacher Appraisal, Complaints, Staffing Dismissals and Dismissal Appeals.



All current governors have registered a nil return in regard to their business, personal and financial interests; and relationships with the school staff (including spouses, partners and relatives.)
