Welcome to our Governors’ section
Who are we?
Our Governing Board is made up of 12 people, drawn from different parts of the community, including parents, staff and the Local Authority and the wider community. Everyone brings their own skills, perspective and experiences to ensure we have a diverse team.
What are we responsible for?
accountability to parents and the wider community. We must gather views, ask questions and decide what is best for the school;
supporting and challenging the headteacher (critical friend) through a mutual relationship of trust and respect. The Governing Board works with the headteacher to create a clear understanding of the challenges faced in managing a school.
We do this by holding regular meetings as a whole Governing Board and in committees. The headteacher regularly updates us on all aspects of school life and we make regular monitoring visits linked to the School Improvement Plan.
