Governing Body:

The role of school governors falls into four main areas:

  • Overseeing the strategic direction of the school;
  • Ensuring accountability to parents, staff and others for the school's overall performance;
  • Monitoring and evaluating how the school is doing;
  • Supporting the Headteacher and staff as well as offering constructive challenges.

The Full Governing Body meets five times each year, following the meetings of the sub-committees.  The Finance Personnel and Premises Committee is responsible for keeping a check on the school's budget and all other matters that have a financial aspect; all matters to do with employees, including recruitment and pay and considers anything to do with the school site and premises, together with Health & Safety.


The Curriculum Committee considers all matters to do with what is taught in the school as well as standards of achievement. This includes SEN issues and use of Pupil Premium and interventions.


All Governors may be contacted by writing to them directly using the school address or by contacting the school on Telephone: 01527 68430. 

Curriculum sub-committee meets three times each year to discuss matters in detail and the Finance, Personnel and Premises sub-committee meets four times a year.  They then report back to the Full Governing Body at the next meeting.  All governors sit on at least one sub-committee and some sit on both.
