Governors make decisions about how the school is run in consultation with the headteacher. They have legal duties, powers and responsibilities which include appointing staff and deciding how the school budget is spent.
The governing body is made up of parents, staff and representatives of the community. Governors are elected or appointed for four years and serve on one or more committees to carry out their various duties.
The governing body meet each term to discuss the School Improvement Plan, agree the budget and generally ensure that the school is run in an efficient manner. Sub committees meet regularly and report back to the main governing body. Governors regularly visit the school to focus on a particular subject and participate in the school’s self-evaluation procedures. Governors report back to the full governing body.
