About School Governors

 

A school governor is a member of a school's governing body, which is made up of volunteers. Governors work with the headteacher and staff to help raise standards of achievement, and are at the heart of how a school operates. As well as helping the school agree and maintain standards by setting and monitoring targets and planning for the future, the governors also help the school to respond to the needs of parents and the wider community. They are a friend to the school, offering professional support and challenge. A governing body's responsibilities include: 

 

  • accountability for the performance of the school
  • planning the school's future direction
  • selecting the headteacher
  • making decisions about the school's budget and staffing
  • making sure a broad range of subjects is taught, that meet legal requirements
  • ensuring that the school provides for all its pupils


The Governing body meet at-least once per term to review the current status of the school, and the sub committees meet at least once per term. We have a Teaching and Learning Committee (T&L) and a Finance, Personnel and Premises Committee (FPP).


If you are interested in joining the Governing body, please contact the Chair of Governors via the School.


Governors serve for a 4 year term - below is a list of our current Governors, the category of Governor they are and the date when they were appointed.
