The purpose of having a governing body is to:
OUR GOVERNING BODY
All schools have a governing body which is generally composed of people from four different groups:
1) The school staff
2) The Local Authority
4) The Local Community
Each governor is chosen by the group they represent. All Governors have voting rights except for Associate members.
Working together, governors support the school, particularly in making key decisions about its overall vision for children’s education. As a group, we never lose sight of the school’s most important people: the children. We want the best for them trying always to keep what will improve their future life chances at the front of our thinking. In the sections below, you can find a brief description of why each volunteer wanted to be a school governor.
Our Chair of Governors is Mr Chris Manton. He can be contacted through the school office.
HOW WE WORK WITH THE SCHOOL
Individual governors have specific links with areas of the school’s work and its priorities for improvement. The 'link areas' of each governor will be published on this site as soon as they have all been finalised.
Governors also help to appoint the school’s staff. The work of the governing body is shaped by four committees:
Full governing body meeting, which is held each term, is the most formal of our meetings. The Chair of Governors, Chris Manton chairs these meetings.
The full governing body have 3 further meetings per year where they specifically discuss the areas of Finance, Pupils and Personnel and Strategic Development.
