Our Governors

The Governing Board, Executive Headteacher and senior staff form the school leadership and management team, and share responsibility for the school.  The Governing Board must hold the school to account for the standards it achieves.  It must ensure that all resources (including the school budget and staff) are properly used to meet the needs of all children and provide value for money.  Governors help to form the School Improvement Plan and are responsible for monitoring all aspects of its effectiveness in terms of outcomes for pupils.

The Governing Board is made up of 4 groups who represent the stakeholders of the school: staff, parents, the community and the Local Authority.  This range of people is intended to provide a broad and balanced selection of viewpoints and to represent each sector of the school’s community. Governors are volunteers. An effective Governing Board will have members who have a wide range of experience and a variety of skills to offer their school. They typically serve for an initial period of four years, which can be renewed once, and during this time will have a variety of responsibilities.
