The School Governing body comprises 15 members as follows: from the Local Education Authority (LEA), Foundation governors appointed by the Church of England; parents elected by all the parents in the school; Community governors; and staff.
The role of the governing body is to support the Headteacher and the senior management team in the strategic decision making and financial management of the school. The full governing body meets once a term for a formal meeting.
The main governing body is sub-divided into smaller committees which look at key aspects of the school and then report back each term to the full governing body.
The two sub committees are:
Resources - This committee reviews Personnel, Finance and Premises
School Improvement - This committee reviews Curriculum and Pupil Achievement
Each teacher in the school is responsible for the co-ordination of at least one subject across the whole school. Each Governor is linked to a teacher and spends time in school with that teacher reviewing the management and co-ordination of their subject and then, annually, produce a written report to the full governing body.
The Governors all work on a voluntary basis and they attend regular training to ensure that they keep up to date with the curriculum and all new initiatives.
