Governors

The governing body is responsible for the overall management of the school and consists of two elected parent governors, one local authority governor, one staff governor and 7 co-opted governors. Parent and staff governors are elected every four years. All parents of children who are pupils at the school are eligible for election. The Headteacher is also a governor.

The governing body meets at least once a term with sub-committee meetings inbetween.

All governors make regular visits to the school and have a formal walk around the school as a unit at least once a year. This enables them to develop closer working links with both staff and children.

The governing body fully supports the Headteacher and staff of the school in the delivery of the curriculum, according to Local Authority and national guidelines.
