Governors

What we do?

Whilst Mrs Avey manages the school day to day and is the principal professional adviser to the Governing Body (GB ) it is the GB that has responsibility for the overall management of the school.


The Governing Body:-

  • Determine the strategic aims and objectives of the school in accordance with all relevant legislation.
  • Monitor the implementation of the school plan.
  • Review the school policies and procedures.
  • Act as a critical friend providing both support and challenge.

 

The GB meet twice each term as a full GB and in-between times, in smaller committees focusing on:

  • Areas for school improvement and
  • The schools’ resources.

The Governing Body is made up of individuals who volunteer their services to the school; bringing their own skills, judgements, and knowledge from varying backgrounds.

Each governor also is linked to a specific curriculum subject within school.

Minutes of all our meetings can be acquired from the school office as can copies of all policies reviewed.

Every Governor has completed a declaration  of pecuniary and business interests which is reviewed annually. Currently there are no interests to declare for our Governing Body members. Conflicts of interest are declared at every meeting.
