Our Governing Body is made up of 10 people.  We have:

  • 1 LEA appointed member
  • 4 Parent Governors
  • 1 Staff member
  • 3 Co-Opted members
  • 1 Headteacher

What does the Governing Body do?

Our governing body is responsible for overseeing the work of the school and for providing direction and guidance for the future. Its responsibilities cover the overall management of the school, helping to determine its aims, objectives and policies in accordance with all the relevant legislation. The governing body:

  • is accountable for the performance of the school
  • plans the school’s future direction
  • makes decisions on the school’s budget and staffing
  • makes sure that the school fulfils its curricular and legal obligations
  • decides how the school can encourage pupils spiritual, moral and cultural development
  • makes sure that the school provides for all its pupils, including those with special educational needs
  • acts as a critical friend to supports the school’s management team

The full governing body meet once each half term. As well as their collective responsibilities, governors are also members of committees with specific responsibilities:

  • School Improvement: responsible for determining and monitoring the yearly budget and the occupation, use and upkeep of the school premises. For fulfilling the school’s curricular and legal obligations and evaluating the school’s performance and future plans.
  • Personnel:  responsible for all staffing issues, employing new staff, the school’s pay policy, performance management.

To ensure consistency, the governing body makes decisions as a ‘body’, never as individuals.
