Governors

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school’s governors, and the work that we do. You can also read the minutes from our meetings.

Our main role is to support the Headteacher and the staff – the phrase often used to describe this role is ‘a critical friend’. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life. The two key documents used for this are the School Plan (SP) and the Self Evaluation Form (SEF). The SP sets out a strategic plan for the school, with targets that everyone works towards and the SEF sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements.

Our legal duties include:-

• setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
• approving the school budget
• reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives
• appointing, challenging and supporting the headteacher

The Governing Body meets at least once every term. We have set up committees and working groups to look at particular issues (such as pay, performance management, teaching, learning, pupil welfare and safeguarding issues. A small group (Headteacher, Governors responsible for finance and the School Finance Officer) meets regularly to keep an eye on school finances between our termly governor meetings. All governors are informed about what happens at these meetings.

Parent Governor Vacancies

Having re-constituted in line with the Governments 2013 regulations there are several categories of governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. 
These are parent governors, the Local Authority, staff and the diocese (as we are a voluntary Church of England School) and those co-opted by the Governing body. All governors have equal status, and when appointed serve a 4 year term.
