Our governing body is currently made up of 12 people (see link below), representing local government, the community, elected parents and members of school staff. The governors have a general responsibility for the effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by legislation, in order to provide the best possible education for the children. The day to day management lies in the hands of our head teacher and his team of staff.
Board of Governors 2015/16
We always act in the best interests of the school and the children. If you are interested in becoming a governor then please feel free to talk to members of the current governing body or speak Susan Overson our Clerk to the governors and School Business Manager.
With the exception of the Headteacher, governors serve a four-year term before needing to seek re-election or re-appointment. Governor meetings are generally held once a term, in addition to the various committee meetings. Our governing body has two main committees:
- Resources Committee - which oversees the schools finances, staffing, health & safety and premises.
- Teaching & Learning Committee - which overseas the school curriculum, school standards & school development plan (SDP)
- Safeguarding Committee - which oversees child protection, anti bullying, behaviour & safeguarding
