Governor Information

Our governors are volunteers and parents, professionals and members of the community who are responsible for the long term strategic direction of the school.

 
Governors' Roles and Responsibilities
The governing body have statutory responsibilities including agreeing the school budget and expenditure, and ensuring key policies are in place. Governors do not get involved in the day to day running of the school. The role is one of 'critical friend', asking questions and providing challenge and support in any areas which they have expertise. Other key role of the governing body include:

 

  • To hold the school account for the educational standards it achieves.
  • Deciding on how the resources of the schools are best used
  • Planning ahead so that the performance of our children and school continue to improve
  • Making sure the school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Celebrating the school's success.

 

Our governing body has a Full Governing Body committee which all governors are required to attend and the following sub-committees:

  • Performance and Standards
  • Finance and Resource Management
