As part of the successful running of a school the Governing Body provides support, guidance and when necessary constructive criticism. The board is made up of different types of Governor ; parents, Local Education Authority appointed, community, teaching and non-teaching staff and of course the head teacher.


The full governing body meet once per term however regular sub-committee meetings happen in between and it is within these that the nitty gritty of ensuring everything runs smoothly, policies are kept up to date and opportunities to enrich our children’s school experience are examined and developed. The list of committees is long but the key ones are ; Standards, Curriculum & Inclusion, Finance, Staffing, Buildings, Health & Safety and Safeguarding. A variety of governors from the full body are designated members of these sub-committees. We also have a ‘Governors Improvement Group’ which brings together all the chairs of the sub-committees to ensure we, as governors, are keeping up to date with our roles and responsibilities - making us better equipped to support the school.
