Meet the Governors

The purpose of the Governing Body is to provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. It has three key functions:

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.

Our Governing Body meets at least once a term for a Full Governing Body meeting. In addition, Governors are members of either the Leadership and Financial Management committee, the Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare Committee or the Teaching, Learning and Assessment committee. These committees also meet once a term.

Some Governors are linked to key targets within the School Development Plan and/or have individual responsibilities in school e.g. Safeguarding and Pupil Premium.  Our Governors carry out regular visits and meet with individual staff members to discuss progress and development in their particular areas. Reports are presented to the Full Governing Body.
