Meet the Governors

What is the role of the Governors?

The purpose of the Governing Body is:

  • To establish the School’s strategic direction, ethos and vision.

  • To ensure that the School sets high educational standards for all its pupils and maintains oversight to ensure that all pupils achieve the best they possibly can.

  • To maintain financial oversight of the School’s budget.

How is the Governing Body structured?

The Governing Board consists of 12 positions:

  • 6 Co-opted Governors – selected by the governing body
  • 1 Local Authority Governor – nominated by the local authority
  • 3 Parent Governors – voted for by the parents of the school
  • 1 Headteacher Governor
  • 1 Staff Governor  - voted for by the staff of the school

 

The Full Governing Body meets six times per academic year and has created two Committees which also meet regularly throughout the year:

  • Full Governing Body: considers and discusses strategic matters concerning the school and holds the School Leadership Team to account.  The Chair of Governors is Chris Woods and the Vice Chair is Holley Hunt.
  • Resources Committee: maintains financial oversight of the School.  The Resources Committee is Chaired by Kate Allen.
  • Quality of Education Committee: has oversight of the curriculum and children performance and progress.  This is Chaired by Holley Hunt.

 

Governors become members of the committees according to which their existing skills and experience are most suited.  The Governing Body has the option of building expertise on Committees by appointing Associate Members; there is 1 Associate Member.
