School Governors

The governing body of a school is responsible for ensuring that pupils receive high quality education and that the conduct of the school reflects this aim.

The governors work as a team with the head teacher in the whole strategic planning and management of the school. Their responsibilities include consideration and agreement of the aims and policies of the school, discussion and approval of the targets for improvement, appointment of staff, setting and monitoring the budget, monitoring the performance of the school and reporting to the parents and community on how they have accomplished their tasks.

Governors are the link between the school and the community and representatives of all those with an interest in the well-being and reputation of the school are needed.  They are a vital part of our team.

The constitution of the Governing Body is shown below:

  • Head x 1

  • Parents x 3

  • LA x 1

  • Staff Governors x 1

  • Co-Opted x 5

The full governing body meets once a term, with its committees also meeting as often as required.
