Governors


Our Governors are part of one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have a vital part to play in raising school standards. They provide strategic leadership and ensure accountability in schools. The role of the governing board is key to the effectiveness of a school.

We are fortunate to have a range of skills from our governing body and a wealth of experience.  Governors receive training and support to help them carry out their roles. All members have agreed to serve a term of four years.

The role of the governing board is as follows:

  • Agree and set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the Headteacher (a critical friend)

The constitution of our governing board is as follows:

  • 2 Parent governors 
  • 1 Headteacher 
  • 1 Staff governor 
  • 2 Foundation governors 
  • 2 Co-opted governers 
  • 1 Local Authority governor
We also have two non-voting associate members.
