How the Governing Body operates

The whole governing body meets every half term during the school year to discuss, approve and monitor a range of issues. Governors are responsible for ensuring that the school’s statutory responsibilities are met in various aspects of school life, including the curriculum, finance, staffing and health and safety.  This is achieved more effectively by dividing responsibility between two committees: Children & Learning and Resources & Premises. These committees meet every half term to review the school’s performance in detail.  Each governor is a member of one of these committees, although the Chair of Governors and Headteacher attend meetings for both committees.  

Minutes of governing body meetings are public information. Most recent minutes are displayed outside the school office, or specific minutes are available on request.
