The Governing Body is made up of representatives of the school staff, parents, the Local Authority and members of the local community. They are a group of individuals, from a variety of backgrounds, who work as a team to support the school in making sure the priorities established are the right ones for school improvement. They have general responsibility for the management of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation and the agreed policies of the school. They work in partnership with the Headteacher to make decisions about how the school is run in order to improve the quality of education and ensure pupil progress.
The Governing Body hold two Full Governing Body meetings per term and also has two sub committees – Teaching & Learning Committee and the Finance & Resource Committee – which usually meet once per term. The sub committees report to the Full Governing Body. Please ask in school if you wish to see (non-confidential) minutes from these meetings.
