Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ Page

 

Our governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to our children's education. They support and challenge the Headteacher and senior leadership team to ensure that the school is run effectively for the benefit of the children and staff. Some of the things they are responsible for are: 

 

  • monitoring expenditure and overseeing the school budget
  • monitoring standards
  • ensuring that policies and procedures are in line with regulations 
  • overseeing personnel issues 
  • monitoring and evaluating the progress the school is making towards the achievement of its aims and objectives
  • health and Safety
  • safeguarding

 

They meet as a governing body each term, or more frequently if the need arises. They also meet at committee meetings and working parties; they are:

 

  • Pupils, Parents and Community (PP&C)
  • Finance
  • Curriculum & Standards (SICS)
  • Health and Safety
  • Pay
  • Discipline

 

All governors attend most meetings. Any absences are recorded as accepted and reviewed as appropriate. Governors were rated good by Ofsted in 2016. Governors are also there to listen to you, gather your opinions and ask questions. They are a 'critical friend' to the headteacher, offering support, guidance and challenge where appropriate. They are a committed group of individuals from a range of backgrounds and experiences who help to make our school so successful!


Please find below details of how our governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each governor.
