The overall management of the school is the responsibility of the governors. They work closely with the Head and Local Authority to appoint staff, ensure that the National Curriculum and statutory policies are implemented and monitor the budget. They represent parents, the Local Authority and the local community.
The Board meets 6 times each year and governors’ committees meet regularly and report back to the Board. Minutes of all these meetings are available in the school office. We have a Finance and Personnel committee and Headteachers Pay and Appraisal committee. We also have governors with a specific role and responsibility. SEND, Health and Safety, EYFS, Child Protection, Website, Data Protection, Governor Skills and SFVS. Our governors have individually taken on responsibility of 1 or more of the 4 key priorities from the School Development Plan.
Our governors also support the school in a more informal capacity by supporting individuals and groups with their learning in class, accompanying classes on trips and attending school events held throughout the year.
