All of the members of the Governing Body can be contacted via the School Office.

Governors are appointed, elected or co-opted onto the Governing Body for a term of four years to represent the views of parents, staff, the local community and the Local Education Authority.  Our Governing Body currently has 14 members; 6 Parent Governors; 1 Headteacher; 1 Staff Governor; 1 LEA Governor and 5 Co-opted Governors.  

The purpose of the Governing Body is to oversee the running of the school and to provide support to the Headteacher and her staff.  Practically, this involves listening to proposals put forward by the Senior Management Team and asking ‘what if’ type questions so that the proposal can be modified and hopefully improved in order to reach the right decision for the school.  Many of the school’s duties are actually the responsibility of the Governing Body and these are supported by the Headteacher who involves the Governing Body in the decision making process.  For instance, Governors are involved in recruitment but work alongside the educational expertise of the Headteacher when reaching a decision. 

To carry out its business efficiently, the full Governing Body meets twice a term (6 times a year).  It also has 5 sub-committees; ‘Management & Finance’, ‘Admissions’, ‘Curriculum & Behaviour’, ‘Special Educational Needs’ and ‘Buildings and Health & Safety’. These sub-committees are able to conduct some of the business of the Governing Body and then report back to the full Governing Body to keep it informed of the work carried out.  Some decisions can be taken by these sub-committees but others – such as approval of the school’s budget – require the approval of the full Governing Body.  Some Governors carry out specific roles, such as Headteacher’s Performance Assessor, but all Governors try to be a member of at least one sub-committee.  These sub-committees meet, on average, once a term depending upon the sub-committee’s workload.
