Our two sites have one governing body which meets regularly to discuss school issues either as a whole or as part of a committee.
Our Chair of Governors is Alan Ball. A full list of current governors can be found below and on the school notice board. If you are interested in becoming a school governor, please contact the school office. We welcome all enquiries.
School governors are drawn from different parts of the community and can be parents and staff or from the Local Authority, the community and other groups. This helps ensure the governing body has sufficient diversity of views and experience but does not mean governors of a particular category represent that group on the governing body. For example, parent governors do not represent the parents at the school and do not report back to them.
The governing body has a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. Its responsibilities include but are not limited to:
• setting targets for pupil achievement
• managing the school’s finances
• making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based
• appointing staff
• reviewing staff performance and pay.
Further information and reading can be found on the National Governance Association website.
