Governors

According to the latest advice from the Government, the role of the school Governors includes:

  • setting the aims and objectives of the school
  • monitoring and evaluating progress towards these aims
  • acting as a “critical friend” to the Headteacher
  • maintaining links with parents and the community

As Governors, we carry out these and other roles by visiting the school as often as we can, and by attending meetings that deal with our key responsibilities.

There is a termly meeting of the Whole Governing Body where a regular report from the Head on the work of the school is received. There are also separate meetings for Governors’ committees which look at particular issues with the Head:

  • Resources - the school’s budget, how it is spent, managing the development and recruitment of staff,  reviewing Health and Safety,and the buildings and grounds. 
  • Curriculum - looking at standards and how subjects are taught.

The people who carry out this job bring a range of age and experience to the task. They are parents, staff from the school, and those co-opted because of their particular abilities or interests. Governors are volunteers who have the well-being of the staff and children in mind in all that they do - we are always ready to listen to ideas, suggestions or problems relating to the school.

A report of the Governors meeting attendance for the period 2020/21 can be found here:
