Welcome to our Governors' section
What are governing bodies for?
Governors are the largest volunteer force in the country and their overall purpose is to help schools raise standards and provide the best possible education for their students.
How does the governing body work?
The Governing Body works as a group, taking collective responsibility for all decisions. Governors work in close partnership with the Head teacher who, as the lead professional, advises and assists the Governing Body to carry out its functions. The Governing Body includes people with a wide range of skills, experience and backgrounds, all of whom have equal status and rights as Governors. Governors are encouraged to broaden and develop their skills, knowledge and confidence through engaging in training opportunities.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
Each governing committee meets once each term to discuss key areas such as student performance, the curriculum, staffing, finance, premises and health and safety. It is important for Governors to get to know the school and its staff, which they do by regularly visiting and attending school events and open days whenever possible. Governors take on specific roles linked to aspects of the school’s development plan and with members of the Senior Leadership Team.
