Governors

The Governing Body is made up of a group of volunteers whose role is to work as a team to ensure that the school delivers a broad and balanced curriculum. They do this by:

  • Helping plan the school’s future direction
  • Making decisions about the school’s budget and staffing
  • Interviewing and selecting staff
  • Ensuring the National curriculum is taught
  • Deciding how the school can encourage pupils’ spiritual, moral and social development
  • Monitoring and evaluating school performance

The full governing body meets once a term and much of their work is carried out at either personal or small committees level.
