What is the role of the Governing Body?
The governing body of a school is collectively responsible for the overall strategic management of the school. It works in close and balanced partnership with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day to day management issues. The governing body are involved in the development of school polices and help shape the aims, direction and ethos of the school.
We have a rolling program of reviewing all the school policies. All policies can be viewed by contacting the Headteacher, Mr Brawley.
Who are the School Governors?
There are different types of governors listed on the governing body.
The Headteacher always has the choice to be a member of the governing body. Parent governors are elected by parents and carers of pupils registered at school. LEA governors are appointed by the Local Education Authority and have been nominated by political parties. Staff governors are paid members of staff who have been elected by the staff. Community governors are appointed by the governing body to represent the community.
The governing body is sub-divided into Committees and each committee is assigned specific roles and responsibilities.
