Whilst the Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation and management of the school on a day to day basis, overall responsibility lies with the Governing Body. This includes assisting with the appointment of staff, having oversight of the curriculum and ensuring that the premises and finances of the school are efficiently and effectively used.
The Governing Body, as a whole, meets regularly throughout the year, in addition to the meetings of its sub-committees.
All Governors are also linked to aspects of our current School Development Plan, which they monitor through visits to school and discussion with staff. Members are either elected (parent governors) or appointed (community and foundation members) and each holds a given term of office.
The Minutes of our full Governor meetings are available to view once they have been agreed as a true record and signed by the Chair at the next scheduled meeting. Please follow the links below to read the latest set of approved minutes:
