The school’s Governing Body has twelve members when all places are filled. It is made up of the Headteacher, one member of teaching staff, one member of support staff, two appointed by the Local Authority and four parent governors. The remaining three governors are ‘community’ governors who are appointed for specific skills and experiences that they can offer to the school.
Among other roles, the governors act as the school’s ‘critical friend’, having regular meetings to look at how well the school is doing in terms of the achievement of pupils, teaching and learning, behaviour and safety and also leadership and management. The governors also ensure that the school’s finances are managed well and the school offers good value for money.
Each governor is linked to an area of school improvement and/ or responsible for the support and monitoring of a key aspect of school life and/ or learning. Governors carry out monitoring visits on a regular basis and report back their findings at governors’ meetings.
