Governors

The governing body is an important part of the school’s senior leadership. Governors work closely with the headteacher and school leaders to ensure they have a good understanding of the outstanding education provided for the children.

 

The governors are from different roles and experiences. This includes: current and past parents, the private sector, education sector and retired personnel. This range of experience supports an effective governing body.

Governors are on one of two committees, teaching and learning or finance and premises. There is a committee meeting each term.

There are also full governing body meetings every term for all governors and the strategic leadership team.

This includes a governor day when governors attend during the day to understand the school’s creative way of learning.

Currently, governors are also closely monitoring the deficit budget.

Meetings – 5.30pm

Governor Day – 12.00pm including lunch with the children
