The governing body is made up of staff, parent, community and local authority appointed governors. Working together in support of the schools vision the governing body has three core functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  2. Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff.
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Governors attend full governing body meetings each term, as well as representing the board on a number of sub-committees including health and safety, safeguarding, finance, standards and curriculum and resources. With designated responsibilities linked to the school development priorities for the year, governors are encouraged to go in to school and observe lessons and meet with staff and children.
