Meet the Governors

The Governors are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. The Governing Body should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent



Membership is for a term of four years

Our Governing Body meets at least once per term, although we have established two sub-committees who meet on a more regular basis and have their own specific Roles and Responsibilities.  The Resource Management Committee (RMC) deals with teaching and non-teaching staffing issues, budget setting, Premises and Health & Safety and ensuring the School gets the best value.  The Teaching & Learning Committee (TLC) deal with all aspects of the curriculum, teaching and learning, pupil progress and target setting.
