The governing body carries out its functions with the aim of taking a largely strategic role in the running of the school. This includes:

The governing body acts as a “critical friend” to the head teacher by providing support and challenge. The head teacher is responsible for the day-to-day, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body. The governors and head teacher work together in partnership to raise standards in the school.

To ensure the governing body is effective in carrying out it’s duties the full committee meets 4 times per year. As well as this there are three sub committees who meet separately. The Resources Committee meets 4 times per year. The Pay review Committee meets at least twice a year and the Curriculum Committee meets twice a year.

If you would like to contact any of the governors please send in a sealed envelope for their attention and our administration staff will pass this onto them.
