The Governing Body is responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality of education.
Together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for the day to day management, Governors work with the Senior Leadership team and staff in the following areas:
You don't have to have children at the school to be a Governor. However, you do have to be over 18, and pass a formal check for your suitability to be within a school. What's really important is that you have energy, enthusiasm, time and a real desire to help provide children with the best possible education.
Governors come from all sections of the community, and all walks of life. They can be parents, residents in the locality, or representatives of local churches or businesses. It is essential that Governors work as part of a team, and can give commitment to the school.
If you are interested in being considered for future vacancies please contact the Clerk to the Governing Body, Mrs Terris. Mrs Terris can be contacted by email at the following address email@example.com or by calling the school and leaving a message.
Governors meet at least once a term as a Full Governing Body and then also as members of the four committees which have specific areas of responsibility – Finance, Premises and HR Committee, Standards and Curriculum Committee. Governors may also be invited to special occasions such as assemblies, sports days, plays and presentations.
