We are a group of representatives from the school community who voluntarily give our time and share our knowledge and skills to help the school deliver the best possible education and care to children.
The full governing body meets five times a year with the head teacher and deputy head teacher to discuss progress (for example in teaching and learning), set targets for improvement, shape school policies, oversee the school’s financial position and ensure the school in fulfilling its statutory responsibilities.
Decisions on proposals brought for consideration by the head teacher are made collectively by the governing body and not individual governors. We are not involved in the day-to-day running of the school - that is the role of the head teacher and paid staff. We provide strategic direction and hold senior leaders to account when monitoring and evaluating the school’s performance. Governors also attend other meetings or make visits to the school as and when required.
