Governors

Governors’ Role

The Governing Body of our school comprises of members of the local community, Local Government, parents and teaching staff.
It is an unpaid role.
The Governing Body ensures that all relevant policies and procedures are in place, that the school runs safely and smoothly and that school decisions are properly checked.

Much of the business of the school Governing Body takes place through committees which meet at least once per term.
Governors are also linked to subject areas.

The main duties of the governing body are:

    • to establish the aims and policies of the school
    • to advise on and monitor the school budget
    • to ensure delivery of the National Curriculum and R.E.
    • appointing and supporting staff
    • providing challenge to the school
    • providing outside advice
    • acting as a link between the local community and the school.
