Governors

Our Governing Body

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school’s governors, and the work that we do.

Governors:

  • are accountable for the performance of the school to parents, Ofsted and the wider community
  • plan the school's future direction
  • provide challenge and support to the headteacher and staff
  • monitor the impact of policies and oversee school budgets and staffing
  • make sure the national curriculum is taught
  • help to decide how the school can encourage children's spiritual, moral and social development
  • make sure the school provides for all its children, including those with special needs

The Governing Body meets at least once every term.

There are several categories of governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. These are Community governors, the Local Authority (“LA”), Parents, and Staff. All governors have equal status, however they are appointed.
