Work of the Governing Body

Governors play an important role in the life of the School. The role is to help shape the strategic direction of the school, monitor its work and provide a link between the school, parents and the wider community.


Governors have the following main responsibilities:

  • To determine the strategic future of the school

  • To decide how the school budget should be spent

  • To oversee the curriculum provision

  • To appoint staff

  • To decide policy on such things as behaviour, sex education, special needs provision and salaries.


The full Governing Body meets each term. The work of the Governing Body is carried out by the two main committees (Resources and Performance, Standards & Communications) that meet regularly throughout the year.


There are other committees in the Governing Body which meet at least annually or more often if required.


In addition each Governor specialises in a subject area.
