Welcome to our school
The Governing Body
Governors have a wide range of duties relating to the aims, policies and conduct of the school, improvement of standards, finance, staff appointments and links between the local community and school.
They meet once a term as a whole Governing Body and have further termly meetings through various sub-committees. The Spring term meeting of the governing body will be on Wednesday March 7th 2018. Each governor is linked to a particular class in school; these governor links will remain with the class as they move up through school.
From September 1st 2015 we have a newly re-constituted governing body; details of which are set out below.
The Governing Body is made up of parents, staff members, co-opted representatives as well as an appointed member of the Local Authority. An important role of each Governor is to put forward the views of those they represent. Please contact any governor if you wish them to put your views forward or you have any other school issue you would like them to take up on your behalf.
Each governor has a term of office lasting for four years, after which they may seek re-election. However, posts are open for others to apply also.
