What do our Governors do?
The governing body's main aim is to help raise standards of achievement and make sure the school provides a good quality education. The day-to-day management of the school is the responsibility of the head teacher and staff. Rather than manage, Governors are there to help shape the school's future direction and focus.
We have four working committees and our governors also attend a full governing body meeting, all of which take place termly.
The three main responsibilities of every governing board are:
- Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Governor Attendance 2021/2022
Types of Governor
Parents, including carers, of registered pupils at the school are eligible to be elected as governors at the school. Parent Governors are elected by other parents at the school by a process of nominations and a ballot if necessary.
Local Authority Governors
The Local Authority appoints LA Governors and any eligible person can be appointed to this role.
Both teaching and support staff, who are employees at the school, are eligible to become Staff Governors. They are elected by the school staff.
The Headteacher is a member of the Governing Body by virtue of his/her office.
Co-opted Governors are appointed by the Governing Body on the basis that they have the necessary skills to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school. All categories of governor are elected or appointed to serve a four-year term of office: governors may serve more than one term of office.
Associate members are appointed by the governing body to serve on one or more governing body committee. They may also attend full governing body meetings. They are not governors and therefore do not have a vote in governing body decisions, but may be given a vote on decisions made by committees to which they are appointed.
Partnership governors are appointed by the governing body. Individuals are only eligible to be nominated as a partnership governor if the person nominating them believes that they have the skills needed to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.
