Governors

The Governing Body – Who we are & What we do

The Governing Body is composed of staff, parents and representatives of the local authority and our community.

Our remit as governors is to work as a team with the Head Teacher to provide strategic management for the school. The governing body sets the school's aims and objectives with a view to promoting high standards of education and achievement.

The whole Governing Body meets formally once every half term, as do each of the following sub-committees.

 

The Finance and Premises Committee prepares the annual financial plan and regularly reviews the condition of the school buildings.

 

The Learning and Teaching Committee advises on all matters relating to the curriculum, working with staff to review and revise teaching policies. It tracks the school performance: monitoring achievements against targets that have been set.
