Our Governing Body has thirteeen members who bring a variety of skills and expertise to their roles on our Governing Body, together with energy, enthusiasm and a real desire to ensure that our children receive the best possible education.

The role of our Governing Body is to set the strategic direction of our school together with our Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management.

The key roles of school governing bodies are:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent 

Our Governing Body operates through three committees - Standards and Curriculum, Premises and Resources and Children and Community.  These committees meet every half term and report to Full Govering Body meetings which are also held half-termly.  The Terms of Reference for each committee follow our Scheme of Delegation (please see below). 

Our current governors are  listed below, together with more detail about their roles.

Our Register Of Business Interests can be viewed here and our Scheme of Delegation can be viewed here.  A register of attendance at meetings can be viewed here.
