What We Do


Schools are run by a governing body who work with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure pupils receive a high standard of education.


What do governors do?

Together with the Headteacher they are responsible for making sure schools provide a good quality education and that pupils achieve the highest outcomes;

They provide challenge and support, drawing on knowledge and experience;

They make decisions on matters such as performance outcomes, school targets, statutory policies and school development plans;

They monitor the impact of policies and oversee school budgets and staffing;

They report on school achievements and respond to inspection recommendations;

They hear appeals from pupils and staff and consider complaints;

They ask searching questions alongside respecting the position of the Headteacher as professional leaders of schools.


As well as meeting as a full Governing Body, governors also meet in smaller groups to make decisions on specific matters.  We currently have the following groups: Resources Committee and Pay Committee.


From time to time there are vacancies for governors. If you are interested in becoming a governor then please let the Headteacher know. The Governing Body has parents and members of the local community as part of the team.
