Governing Body

The Governors are responsible for the conduct of the school, and for promoting high standards. We aim to ensure that your children are attending a successful school which supports their wellbeing and provides them with a good education. We set the strategic direction of the school, we challenge and support by monitoring, reviewing and evaluating and we ensure accountability by working with the Headteacher regarding the school’s performance.

The main work of the Governing Body is carried out through three main committees: Finance & Premises, Pupil and Curriculum and Personnel. The Full Governing Body meets once per term as do each of the Committees. During these meetings the many policies which relate to all aspects of the life and work of the school are discussed and agreed. We also discuss, approve and monitor the School Development Plan - the ‘working document’ which tells us what is happening now and sets out our plans for the future. The Headteacher keeps us very well informed about all aspects of school life. We also visit the school on a regular basis.

The Governing Body is responsible for the appointment and performance management of the Headteacher who, in turn, is responsible for the implementation of the policies and the day to day running of the school, including managing all the staff.
