The Governing Body

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. Governors 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 they bring a breadth of experience and expertise to the development of the school and oversight of the delivery of education to its pupils.  The Full Governing Body (FGB) formally meets every half term and is supported by 4 sub-committees:

Teaching & Learning
School Performance

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 tasks such as responsibility for safeguarding, SEND, Pupil Premium and Equalities, but this is very much an individual choice.

The Governing Body acts for the school as a whole – pupils, parents, carers, teachers and non-teaching staff.  Their remit is primarily strategic in nature whilst the operational running of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and the senior staff.
