Meet The Governors

The school is a community school and it reconstituted in line with statutory guidelines on 5th January 2015.

The full governing body meets five or six times a year. In addition, sub-committees meet regularly to focus on specific issues. There are four sub-committees:

  • a Resources Committee which deals with finance, premises and personnel matters
  • a Learning Committee which deals with matters related to teaching, learning and behaviour
  • a Performance Management Committee which monitors the appraisal of staff and undertakes the appraisal of the head-teacher.
  • a Salary Review Committee that deals with issues around pay.

The governing body is made up of 15 governors.

  • 2 elected parent governors
  • 1 LA governor
  • 1 headteacher
  • 1 elected staff governor
  • 10 co-opted governors (of which up to 3 could be members of staff).

The term of office of all governors (other than the headteacher) is four years.

We currently have a vacancy for three co-opted governors and one local authority governor.
