What does the Governing Body do?

As Governors, we are responsible for a number of areas including attainment, finance, policies and procedures. Our role involves working closely with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure children get the best possible education to enable them to reach their full potential, in an environment where they feel safe, valued and learning is fun.

Our main functions are to:

  • Help set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Help to ensure policies and procedures are relevant and achieve their objectives
  • Set targets to monitor the progress of the school to ensure it is meeting its aims and objectives
  • Be a critical friend to the school and provide a source of challenge and support

The Governing Body structure comprises of:

  • 1 Local Authority Governor
  • 1 Staff Governor
  • The Headteacher
  • 5 Parent Governors
  • 4 Co-opted Governors

Co-opted Governors are appointed by the Governing Body, Parent Governors are elected by the parents of children at the school and Staff Governors are appointed by the staff at the school.

Local Authority Governors are nominated by the Local Authority and the appointment is made by the Governing Body.
