The Governing Body itself is comprised of up to 18 Governors, a combination of parents/carers, staff, community and co-opted Governors, who are responsible for the overall strategic direction and performance of the school. We come from all walks of life and are drawn from the parent/carer body by election as well as having representatives from the local community and our staff. Together we aim to bring a breadth of experience and expertise to the development of the school and oversight of the delivery of education to its pupils. I, and many of my fellow Governors, regularly support the school in a number of ways and regularly attend the music and dance concerts, school plays, consultation, open and certificate evenings as well as the year-end Presentations mornings. We formally meet every half term as a Full Governing Body and are supported by 3 sub-committees:
Teaching & Learning
All Governors aim to support two sub committees with new Governors given the opportunity to join each of the sub committees as observers through the autumn term before making their preference. Many Governors also volunteer to take on specific task such as responsibility for safeguarding, but this is very much an individual choice.
As a Governing Body we act for the school as a whole – pupils, parents, carers, teachers and support staff. Our remit is primarily strategic in nature whilst the operational running of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and the senior staff.
