The main role of the Governing Body is to support the Headteacher and staff to reach targets as identified in the School Development Plan and the School Evaluation Form. These two documents highlight strengths of the school and areas for development. They help us to plan how to move towards excellence in all areas of school life.

Our legal duties include:

  • Safeguarding
  • Teaching and Learning
  • Reviewing progress against the school’s budget and objectives
  • Appointing, challenging and supporting the Head of School

The Governors meet at least once a term.
