Governors

In brief, the Governing body have a general responsibility for the management of the school.  They support the Executive Headteacher, by acting as a “critical friend”.

The Executive Headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day running and management of the school, whilst the Governing Body are responsible for:

- Providing a strategic view to assist in the improvement of the school and to raise standards by working in association with the Headteacher and the teaching team – with support, advice and information drawn from the knowledge & experience of the serving governing members

- Providing both a support & challenge role – by monitoring the school’s effectiveness and continuing to challenge where required and pressing for ongoing improvements in our performance and standards

- Providing accountability – to the parents and the wider community.

  • Monitoring budgets and making sure that we are compliant in key areas such as Child Protection and Health and Safety.

  • Reviewing and updating the many statutory and non-statutory policies which underpin every aspect of school life.

All Governors provide their time on a voluntary basis, and in addition to serving on the Full Governing Body, serve on various other sub-committees which meet regularly to cover:

  • Curriculum: monitoring the curriculum and school’s performance against key criteria

  • Finance, Health, Safety and Sites: approving & monitoring the school’s budget and Health & Safety

  • Personnel: monitoring the schools staff and management including recruitment, performance and pay

  • We always welcome any feedback – positive or otherwise – and are delighted to hear from any parent at any time.
