The main role of the Governing Body is to support the Head of School and staff to reach targets as identified in the School Development Plan and the School Evaluation Form. These two documents highlight strengths of the school and areas for development. They help us to plan how to move towards excellence in all areas of school life.
Our legal duties include:-
- Setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
- Approving the school budget
- Reviewing progress against the school’s budget and objectives
- Appointing, challenging and supporting the Head of School
The Governors meet at least once a term. Committees or working parties look at particular issues and report back to the main Governing Body.
There are several categories of Governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. Currently these groups are Community Governors, Co-opted Governors, Local Authority Governors, Parents and Staff. All Governors have equal voting rights.
We are committed to providing an excellent environment in which pupils learn successfully and enjoy their time in school.
