Governors

 

Governing bodies act as a corporate body, taking a strategic role in the development of the school, supporting and challenging the leadership team.

 

The Governors hold monthly full Governor meetings. The Terms of Reference for these can be found below. The Governors also have a separate Pay committee. Other committees are convened as required. 

 

The strategic development of the school is proposed in an annual improvement plan, building on strengths and assigning resources to develop the priorities identified. Individual governors are linked to each priority and work with the school leadership team to monitor and review progress.

 

Governors are responsible for agreeing the annual budget submission to the local authority and support the executive head teacher in the management of public funds.

 

The Chair of Governors is Mr Ben Shaw who can be contacted via the school office.
