Governors

The Governing Body
The Governing Body takes a strategic role, as a critical friend to the school and to be accountable for its decisions. It works with the Headteacher to set aims and objectives for the school, and agree, monitor and review policies, targets and priorities.

The whole governing body is made up of governors appointed by the parents, community, staff and Local Authority. It meets 10 times a year with the different committees usually meeting once a term, with the exception of the hearings, appeals and pupil discipline committees which meet only as required.
