Welcome to our Governors’ section
What does the Governing Body do?
Governors are responsible for a number of areas including attainment, finance, policies and procedures. Their role involves working closely with the Headteacher and Leading Management 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 where learning is fun.
Their main functions are to:
- Help set the aims and objectives for the school
- Help ensure the 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 operates under a flat structure, i.e. without the traditional sub-committees, in order to increase efficiency and knowledge across the board. It has two standing committees, the Pay Committee and the Headteacher Performance Management Committee. Other panels or working groups may be set up when needed to address particular issues, which then report back to the full governing body.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
