School governors are unpaid volunteers who hold headteachers to account and ensure that schools are meeting their strategic objectives. Governors do not manage the operational day-to-day functions of a school, but are required to oversee its long-term development.
The school has a Governing Body which consists of Governors, elected parents and an elected member of staff. The Full Governing Body meets a minimum of six times per academic year (once per term). Our Governors hold the Head Teacher to account for standards in the school and offer guidance and support in all areas of school life. Additionally, Governors have specific areas of responsibility and these include Health & Safety, SEN, Pupil Premium, Safeguarding and Subject areas in order to monitor the progress the school is making. Governors work closely with the Headteacher, the Senior Leadership Team and Subject Leaders.
