About the Governing Body

Since the introduction of the Education Act (1988), governors have played an increasingly important part in overseeing the running of schools. It’s our role to ensure the school acts in the best interest of the pupils and the communities they serve. Good governance is vital to every school, and in these changing times, more is expected of the governing body than perhaps ever before.

The Chair of Governors may be contacted via the school office, on 01484 605441. All enquiries will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.

Governor Visits

We also take part in governor visits to the school. These allow us to get a sense of the school itself by seeing how the children are responding to their work, to each other and the staff.  It also serves as a reminder how governorship helps the school as a whole, and why we do it.

This first-hand experience of school is vital in informing our thinking and strategic planning.

What the governing body doesn’t do

The governing body is not responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. This responsibility lies with the head teacher and the senior leadership team.

Interested in Being a Governor?

Our school needs governors, and you could be just who we’re looking for. If you would like to put yourself forward for consideration as a governor, please contact the school directly. One of the governing body will get back to you.
