Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
The governing body is responsible for making sure the school provides a good quality education. Together with the head it sets the school’s aims and policies, and makes decisions on how to spend the budget. Being a governor is an opportunity to have your voice heard and to influence education in the county.
There are people like you making important decisions about how every school is run. They are the school’s governors. Governors come from all sections of the community: parents, staff at the school, the world of business, representatives of local councils and churches – in fact, anyone. There is always a need for enthusiastic and committed people to serve as governors. You don’t have to be an ‘expert’ – only able to get on with others and to work as part of team. You’ll also need some spare time to go to meetings and read papers. There are plenty of free training courses available to help governors with their responsibilities.
The Governing Body operates as a Full Governing Body each meeting without committees.
