The Governing Body 2018-19

As a church voluntary aided school, a number of our governors are elected from the church – foundation governors.

The Governors meet regularly to make decisions for the school. There are also Link Governors who have responsibilities to support specific areas in school. e.g. Numeracy, Literacy, Special Educational Needs, etc. A nominated governor is also attached to each class in school to offer support and communication with the children in that class and with the teacher.

 

The governors are involved with:

Supporting the Headteacher and staff         

· Challenging the school to ensure standards are maintained

· Working in partnership with the Headteacher

· School development planning

· Policy development and review

· Planning the school budget

· Selecting and appointing staff

· Supporting school discipline

· Admissions arrangements to the school

· Ensuring the curriculum is being taught

· Managing the school premises and building works

There are always Governors around school should you wish to have a chat with any of us.
