What do they do?

The governing body is responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the head teacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies. Governors hold the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance managment of staff. Governors oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.
The full governing body meets four times a year and has delegated powers to its committees to conduct the work of the governing body. The governing body has four committees who all meet at least once per term:
  • Curriculum
  • Finance
  • HR
  • Premises
At each full governing body meeting, the chair of each committee feeds back to the full governing body on its work and decisions.
The constitution of the governiong body is:
  • Head Teacher
  • Staff Governor (elected)
  • Local Authority Governor
  • 2 x Parent Governors (elected)
  • 5 x Co-opted Governors
The governing body employs the services of a clerk to support the work of the governing body and ensure that the governing body is meeting its statutory requirements.
