The Governing Body has an essential role in ensuring that the school fulfils its obligations to meet National Standards by providing a broad and balanced curriculum to all pupils, as well as operating within the financial, legal and health and safety expectations of the Department of Education.

They consist of a cross section of representatives of those who have an interest in the correct operation of a school to ensure that all pupils reach their potential. Each Governing Body membership therefore comprises representatives from the staff, parents, community and Local Authority.

From September 2018, the Governing Body will meet three times each term.

Governors also act as a ‘critical friend’ of the school by offering advice and challenge to ensure the statutory functions of the school are met. The Headteacher and staff are directed by the Governing Body to implement policy and procedures daily and in the longer term.

Our Governing Body consists of:
