Governors

The governing body work as a team to oversee the school and ensure that our school provides a good quality education for all our children.

Working with the Head Teacher and other members of staff, the governors are involved in strategically managing the implementation of:

· Setting the school's aims and policies.

· Improving standards of teaching and achievement.

· Setting the schools budget plan.

· Appointing staff.

· Acting as a link between the school and the community.

· Dealing with complaints about the school.

The full governing body meets as a whole group once a term to approve policies, review the progress and the direction of the school and also to vote on any significant decisions.

In addition all governors also attend at least one of the specialist committees where research and discussion on key issues occurs.

Our committees are:

· Finance, Staffing and Premises.

· Curriculum and School Improvement.
