Governors

Cover Image

Whilst the Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation and management of the school on a day to day basis, overall responsibility lies with the Governing Body.  This includes assisting with the appointment of staff, having oversight of the curriculum and ensuring that the premises and finances of the school are efficiently and effectively used.  

The Governing Body, as a whole, meets regularly throughout the year, in addition to the meetings of its various sub-committees. All Governors are also linked to aspects of our current School Development Plan, which they monitor through visits to school and discussion with staff. Members are either elected (parent governors) or appointed (co-opted and foundation governors) and each hold a given term of office.
