The role of the Board of Governors is to make key strategic decisions for the school and to ensure that all statutory duties are met.

Governing bodies are made up of several categories of school governors who are elected or appointed in different ways. These include staff governors, parent governors, co-opted governors and local authority governors.

The full Governing body meets once every half term, which is six times each academic year. Additional meetings may be called if required.

Certain responsibilities are devolved to committees within the governing body. These committees monitor and discuss aspects of the school and report their findings to the full governing body.

The committees are currently as follows:

Pupils and Curriculum

Geraldine Lowden, Eileen Asker(chair), John LeGood, Paul Grigg, Cathy Hastie, Colleen Brown

All Governors formally meet at least six times a year. This is an opportunity to discuss the work of sub-committees, review documentation, consider feedback from Governor visits/monitoring activities and listen to reports from the Headteacher and school staff. Actions and responsibility are delegated to four main sub-committees that meet regularly throughout the year. Their main responsibilities are detailed, below.

 

Finance

Pupils and Curriculum

Premises and Health & Safety
