The Governing Body works closely with the school’s Senior Leadership Team and staff to determine the strategic direction for the school. They have responsibility for monitoring the school’s work and provide challenge and support. As well as meeting each half term, governors visit school to meet with staff and to observe activity in classrooms. They receive regular updates from school staff on what is happening in school.

 

The Governing Body are working closely with the Leadership Team to support continued improvement ensuring high quality teaching, great learning opportunities, an engaging and relevant curriculum and good outcomes for all children.

 

The work of the full Body is supported through the work of three core committees: Leadership and Management Committee – responsible for Finance, Personnel and Premises; Standards and Achievement Committee – responsible for monitoring the performance outcomes for pupils, their behaviour and attendance; and the Quality of Provision Committee which is responsible for the quality of teaching and learning, curriculum, assessment and safeguarding.

 

Each committee has clear terms of reference and a schedule of activity for the year’s meetings. Each committee meets each half term and report to the full Governing Body. From time to time other committee and/or working groups are formed in response to particular developments or circumstances.

 

Governors are committed to helping the school achieve its vision to empower all children to be secure, engaged and equipped for life.

Governors can be contacted via the school office.
