Governing Body

Chair

The Governing Body has 16 members who are elected or appointed for a four year term, apart from the Headteacher who is a permanent member.

Each year a Chair and Vice-Chair are elected from within the Governing Body to lead the work of Governors. 

The governors are volunteers who work with the Headteacher, Senior Leadership and staff in the strategic management of the school. The Governing Body have responsibility for raising school standards through their three key roles:

  • Ensuring the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school are clearly defined.
  • Ensuring the Headteacher is held to account for the educational performance of the school.
  • Ensuring sound financial management of the school’s financial resources.
