Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories and an end of term date.

Governing bodies have three main roles:

  • Provide strategic direction for the school
  • To act as a critical friend of the Headteacher, who is responsible for the  day to day management of the school and the Staff
  • To ensure accountability

Governors are all volunteers and with the exception of the Headteacher, serve a four-year term after which they can seek re-election or re-appointment.

Governor meetings are generally held once a term and the three main committees (Finance and Personnel, Curriculum, Premises) meet once or twice a term.

Meetings are clerked by TBA and minutes of the meetings can be viewed in the school office.

The governing body is supported in its work by Mrs Sarah Smith the consortium finance manager.

Governors can be contacted via the school office and welcome your comments and ideas
