Nothing but the best


School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability for the school. They work closely with the Headteacher to agree the strategic direction of the school and make decisions about balancing resources.

The key functions of the Governing Body are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the target for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher

The Governing Body is made up of no fewer than nine and no more than 13 governors.

  1. Up to 8 governors appointed by the Trust
  2. A minimum of 2 parent governors
  3. Up to 2 staff governors
  4. The headteacher

Governing Body members sit on three committees: Pupil and Personnel; Finance and General Purposes and the Strategic Development Committee.
