The aim and roles of the Governors
The Governors’ aim is to support the Head Teacher in the day-to-day running of the school. They are ultimately responsible for the school and are active in the areas of Curriculum, Finance, Health and Safety, Premises and Staffing. They meet every term for a full Governors’ meeting and once a term in sub committee’s as required. Each Governor is attached to a particular area of the curriculum and also spends time visiting classes and observing activities in the school day.

What is the school Governing Body?
The school governing body is a group of 12 people who work closely with the Head teacher and senior staff to ensure that pupils get a good balanced education. The role of the governing body is to represent the community in the running of the school. Every school is required to have a governing body, and there are statutory roles and responsibilities that governors have to fulfil.
What does the governing body do?
The governing body has three key roles that it is required to fulfil:
How do governors carry out their work?
There are three main areas of practical activity for governors. Probably the most important of these are our regular meetings. We meet as a full governing body once a term, and also have important sub-committees. At or meetings we report, review and plan on a wide range of issues concerned with the strategy and operation of the school.
As part of our role in monitoring and evaluating, governors make regular visits to the school. These can be formal visits, with a specific focus, informal meetings with subject leaders, as well as attending performances, open events, and parent consultations. Visits give governors the chance to meet with staff, pupils and parents and keep in touch with the everyday activity of the school.
Governors also carry out specific projects related to particular issues concerning the school such as; involvement in eco school committee events and reading support.
