School Governors

The Governing Body is the strategic decision making body of the school. Its role is to:

  • set the schools overall strategic direction, and to then work with leaders to communicate this vision, ethos and strategic direction to the whole school community and develop a culture of ambition;
  • provide a balance of challenge and support to the schools leaders, understanding the strengths and areas for improvement at the school;
  • understand the impact of teaching, learning and assessment on the progress of pupils currently in the school;
  • ensure that the school manages its finances effectively and that the school is properly using the pupil premium and primary PE and sport premium;
  • be transparent and accountable, including in recruiting staff, its governance structure, attendance at meetings and contact with parents.

Governors are volunteers who bring their outside experience into school to act as ‘critical friends’. Membership of the Governing Body is drawn from different parts of the community including the church, parents, staff and Local Authority.  The Governing Body meets ten times throughout the school year. Agenda and minutes can be accessed below. The full details of the Governance structure and remit of the Governing Body can be found in the link below under 'Governing Body Terms of Reference/Governance Structure' at the bottom of the page.
