About the Governance:

Governing bodies are the strategic decision-makers and vision-setters in every school. They play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education for every child, by creating robust accountability for school leaders. 


Our Governing Body has 3 core functions supported by a School Development Plan:

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


We have a Governing Body that meets 6 times each year, and The Resources committee who meet 3 times a year. The focus of the Resources committee involves finance, staffing, safety and the buildings and grounds of the school. Our main meetings cover items such as learning and teaching in the school, safeguarding, special educational needs and disabilities.


Our Instrument of Governance is

  • Co-opted Governors (4 in number)
  • Parent Governors (3 in number)
  • Staff Governors (2 in number, one of whom is the Head Teacher in an ex officio role)
  • Local Authority Governor (LA) (1 in number)
