Governing Board

Governance Statement 2020 - 2021

Governors are the formal strategic body who meet once each term to set priorities for the school and agree on the long term plans including the school budget. Our Governors are volunteers from the local school community who work together to ensure that the school is well managed.  The Headteacher and representatives from the school work force are also members of the Governing Body.

The Governing Board has three core functions, as set out in the Department for Education’s Governors’ Handbook:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school
Ensuring financial health, probity and value for money

Governance Arrangements

To undertake the core functions, we have established the following governance structure for our school:

Governing Board Meetings (Chaired by Mr. J. Truelove) are held on a half-termly basis and as required, and focus on setting the strategic direction for the school and delegate functions to the committees of the Governing Board and individual members. These meetings include curriculum, educational performance of the school, personal development, safety, staffing, finance and premises management.
