All of our governors work incredibly hard to support the Head and Staff and are dedicated to ensuring each child has a cheerful and inspirational time whilst they are with us. Each governor plays a full and equal part in the running and management of the school and bring experience from home and work. There are sometimes vacancies; any anyone interesting in taking on this challenging but interesting and rewarding role should contact the Chair or Clerk via the school office.
The Governing Body has the final accountability to the Secretary of State for Education for the running of the school. We set, agree and oversee budgets, monitor the implementation of changes in the law, ensure the national curriculum is being taught, ensuring all pupils having equal access to education as well as helping to formulate the vision and aims of the school. We ensure that we are well informed by subscribing to the National Governors Association and scrutinising internal, local and national information ensuring the school and its resources are utilised well to provide the best outcomes for all our children.
Our Governors meet regularly throughout the year, as a Full Governing Body and in sub-committees (Finance, Ethos and Standards and Achievements). The Governors have a close relationship with the Head Teacher and staff in order to provide a source of support and challenge. Governors are often in school, formally and informally, keeping in touch with school life.
Contact with Governors
Governors can be contacted for issues causing concern to parents or for any other reason. If there are general issues with the running of the school, governors are always open to approaches, please feel free to speak informally. However, the role means that governors are remote from day-to-day running and it may be more beneficial to contact your child’s class teacher or the Head Teacher. Letters should be directed via the school office and are, of course, treated with utmost confidentiality.
