Our governing body is currently made up of 12 people, representing the local authority, the diocese, elected parents and members of school staff.
governors have a general responsibility for the effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by legislation, in order to provide the
best possible education for the children.
The day to day management lies in the hands of our head teacher and her team of staff.
We always act in the best interests of the school and the children. If you are interested in becoming a governor then please feel free to talk to members
of the current governing body.
The Headteacher and the Ex-Officio have an ongoing term of office. All remaining governors serve a four year term of office with the exception of parents and
staff governors who serve a three year term before needing to seek re-election or re-appointment.
Governor meetings are generally held once a term, in
addition to the various committee meetings.
Our governing body has two main committees:
Progress & Achievement Committee - This oversees the school’s support for learning, curriculum design and monitoring pupil outcomes. Reports are regularly written by subject leaders covering these areas and submitted to Governors. Please see the curriculum pages to read these.
Enabling Committee - This oversees the school’s financial, people and capital asset management.
Please see here for further information on which committees governors sit on, their attendance record and also the classes and subject areas they are linked with.
