Meet the Governors

Our Governors play a very important role within our school including appointing staff, deciding upon how the budget will be spent and looking after the school building.

 

They meet at least once a term and also meet in ‘committees’ which focus upon specific areas of their work, these are currently:

 

  • Resources Committee (which covers finance, staffing, site and buildings)
  • Curriculum and Standards Committee
  • Health and Safety Committee

There are also various groups Governors are appointed from including Co-opted Governors, Staff Governors, Parent Governors, and Local Authority Governors.
