Governors

The full governing body meets every half term with a range of sub committees meeting throughout the year to review and monitor all aspects of school life. Together with the headteacher, they establish aims for the school and make decisions.  Amongst their duties, they take part in appointing staff, have overall control over the money spent in school and have responsibilities in connection with the use and maintenance of the premises. More generally, they are expected to be in touch with the local community and to help guide the school to meet the community’s educational needs.
