The Governing Body
The duties of a governing body are set out in various regulations and in the Education Act 2002. These duties are many and varied but are a benefit to the community and rewarding to the individual governor.
Governors have general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement.
The governing body works in close partnership with the Headteacher and all teaching and non teaching staff.
In order to carry out their duties, governors regularly visit the school so that they can develop their understanding of the school which will enable them to fulfil their statutory responsibilities for the conduct of the school.
Each visit is made to carry out a specific purpose. These visits are not a professional inspection or a monitoring or evaluation of staff since these are the duties of the Headteacher. The aim of the visits are to assist the school in achieving its objectives.
Governors meet for full governors meetings four times a year in addition, governors serve on one or more sub committees. These sub committees are the means by which the governing body remains in close contact with the school.
Our sub committees are:- Finance, Strategy and Growth and Recruitment and Personnel.
