Our Governing Body
The school’s governing body is a group of dedicated people from various walks of life with a common interest – to maintain and improve the quality of education in this school.
The governing body aims to provide a vital link between the school and the community. That means that you, if you choose to become a parent governor, can play a more active role in running your child’s school.
The governors have a general responsibility for the effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation and by the policies of the County Council. They have duties relating to staffing, discipline and uniform policies, National Curriculum, school buildings and managing the school’s delegated budget.
Governors are not expected to take detailed decisions about the day-to-day running of the school; this is the responsibility of the Headteacher. If you have any queries about this the Headteacher will be happy to help.
If you would like to know more about becoming a school governor, please contact:
- the Headteacher
- the Chairperson of Governors;
- a local County Councillor;
- ASSET Education.
Formal Governors’ meetings are held every term and copies of the minutes are to be found in a file in the main school office next to the visitors’ book.
