Our Governing Body

 

The Governing Body together with the Senior Management Team of Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher, lead the school, by setting the vision and establishing the right culture to ensure your child has the best possible opportunities to learn and develop as a young person.

Our Governing Body comprises 11 elected people plus the Head teacher, a total of 12.  There are different groups of governors elected from different parts of the community and each governor except the Headteacher is elected for a 4 year term of office.

The full Governing Body meets once a term with an agenda including governor initiated and Local Authority items.  There are several committees including Resources (Finance & Personnel), Premises, Health and Safety and Standards and Curriculum ( Monitoring & Policies).  These meet termly, or half termly depending on business requirements.  For example, the Resources Committee meets to recruit and select staff and to approve and oversee expenditure. The Premises, Health and Safety Committee meets to address all matters of safety, building work and related legislative matters. Standards and Curriculum Committee monitors the teaching, learning and assessment through the school. Other committees can be convened as requires e.g. Appeals, Complaints and Pupil Discipline. 
Our Governors are an active group and really make a difference to the school.
