Declarations of Interest
Governors are required to declare any financial or business interests they have. Currently, there are no governors who have a business or financial interest in the school or whose business or work is contracted/employed by the school.
The role of the Governing Body
The Governing Body plays a central role in the leadership and management of our school by working with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team in:
- Setting targets for raising standards of educational achievement
- Monitoring progress towards meeting these targets
- Finding the right balance between supporting and challenging the performance of the school as a whole
- Deciding strategy, policy and future development plans
In addition to the main Governing Body which meets 4 times per year (once per term to deal with scheduled business, and once a year to consider in detail the data for progress and achievement) there are two main committees: the Curriculum Committee, and the Finance, Premises, Pay and Personnel Committee, both of which meet once per term. Occasionally, an additional sub-committee will be formed to consider additional business. There is an additional meeting of the Head Teacher’s Review Committee which meets annually.
Other Committees (such as Data, Staffing and Pupil Discipline) are called whenever needed.
