The Governing Body plays an important role in deciding the strategic aims, direction and policies of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’; to support, to challenge and to ask questions.
The Governing Body works in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the Multi-Academy Trust. Whilst the Headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school, the Governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.
A formal meeting of the Full Governing Body is held each half term. In addition there are regular Working Party meetings which focus on areas of the curriculum, premises health and safety, personnel and finance.
If you are interested in becoming a governor and would like to know more about the role then please contact Katy Duddridge, Chair of Governors or Louise Robinson, Headteacher.
