Every school has a full governing body and is supported by the Clerk to Governors.

 

We are:

  • A group of people drawn from the school and the local community
  • Responsible for ensuring the strategic direction of the school and the provision of high quality education
  • Responsible for promoting effective ways of teaching and learning when setting school aims and policies. This responsibility is delegated to the Headteacher who has the responsibility for the day to day management of the school

The governors (helped by Senior Leaders) make decisions on:

  • Safeguarding
  • School budget and use of resources
  • Staffing structure and Appraisal
  • Priorities and focus for improvement

The full scheme of delegation can be found here:

Scheme of Delegation Document

We work by?

  • We are supported by three effective committees; Premises, Personnel and Finance Committee, Monitoring Committee and Pay and Performance Committee.
  • Meeting once a term and twice during the Autumn term. We meet on Wednesdays
  • Ensuring our meetings are open to the public
  • Making our meeting agendas available on the website and full minutes of each meeting available from the school office on request by a member of the public
