Governing Body Organisation

Schools are run by a Governing Body working with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership team. The Governing Body is made up of parent, staff, local authority and co-opted representatives.

The Governing Body takes a strategic role, acting as a critical friend to the school and is accountable for its decisions. It sets aims and objectives and agrees, monitors and reviews policies, targets and priorities. Our Governing body consists of 11 governors.  There are four committees; Finance, Personnel, Curriculum and Property. All governors sit on at least two of these committees.
