Our Governing Body

The governors’ work affects most aspects of the school’s work.  They establish, with the Headteacher, aims for the school, and approve policies – for the curriculum, behaviour and discipline, for example; and are responsible for the school’s budget and the use and maintenance of the premises.  They are expected to be in touch with the local community and to help guide the school to meet the community’s educational needs. They are also expected to help the school explain to the community what the school is trying to achieve for their children. School governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together; they cannot act individually.

The full governing body meets twice each term and there are also regular sub-committee meetings to focus on Teaching and Learning, Finance and Premises.
