Governors

What is the role of a governor?

 

School Governors from the local community and the school, are a group of people who take an active voluntary interest and make a positive contribution to the education of our children.   The Governing Body is responsible for making sure the school improves each year and plays an important part in raising school standards. It sets the direction and ensures that the school is meeting its targets, while allowing the headteacher and teaching professionals to manage the school on a day-to-day basis. They work together to provide the best possible education for your children.

 

The Governing Body is responsible for a wide range of issues including the school’s curriculum, the upkeep of the buildings, managing the school's budget and staffing appointments. The full Governing Body meets four times a year and there are regular committee meetings.  At these meetings reports on the school’s progress are discussed along with the areas mentioned above, governors ask the right questions to ensure that they are confident the school is heading in the right direction and progress is being made against the priorities shown in the school improvement plan. Governors also visit periodically during the school day and have opportunity to speak to staff and pupils. 

 

 

Our Governing body is made up of Local Authority, Staff, Parents and Co-opted governors. Members of the Governing body are appointed for a four year term. Our instrument of Governance is below:
