The Governors have a responsibility for the effective management of the school acting within the framework set by Government legislation and the policies of the Local Education Authority.  They determine the aims for the curriculum and have increasing responsibility for the financial management of the school.

The Governors produce an annual report to parents, which can be discussed along with other matters at an annual parents’ meeting.  You will be sent a copy of the report via your child and given good notice of the meeting, which is held in November of each year. Minutes of the Governors’ meetings are available to any parent once they have been signed.  The agenda of any meeting is also available.  The meetings themselves are confidential.

The school Governors do their work voluntarily and put in a great deal of time to ensure the school is managed efficiently and to the benefit of the children.

The Governing Body meet as a whole once a term, but each Governor will also sit on a Sub committee.  These sub committees will meet once a term when necessary and report back to the Full Governing Body in the termly meetings.  The Governors have agreed on the following sub committees:

  • Finance
  • Premises and Community
  • Curriculum and Assessment
  • Staff and Pupil Welfare

The following sub committees sit as and when are needed:

  • Pay and Conditions
  • Threshold – Performance Management
  • Staff dismissal and Disciplinary
  • Pupil Discipline
  • Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher Appointments
  • Non Teaching Appointments
  • ALN
  • Child Protection
  • Anti Bullying
  • Health and Safety
