Laying the Foundations for a Successful Future

Our Governors 

The School Governors are involved in many aspects of school life and make decisions collectively on a range of issues including:

  • curriculum
  • budget management
  • staffing matters
  • pupil discipline
  • health and safety
  • school improvement
  • performance management

The Governing Body conducts most business via termly meetings, working closely with the Headteacher and the LEA.  Sub-committees are appointed from the full membership to deal with some aspects of business and these meet separately.  Special meetings can also be called in order to discuss a particular item of business.

The Governing Body comprises:

  • parents, elected by other parents who have children attending the school
  • headteacher
  • teachers, elected by other teachers at the school
  • non-teaching staff, elected by other non-teaching staff
  • LEA representatives, appointed by the Local Education Authority
  • community governors, appointed from the local community by members of the governing body and the Parish Council
  • foundation governors, appointed by the church.
