Governing Body Members
We are a ‘Voluntary Aided’ Church of England school provided initially by the Church Trustees. Governors have responsibility for areas such as admissions, safeguarding, curriculum, staffing, resources and financial management. The Governing Body meets regularly and much of the basic work of the Governors takes place through its committees, most commonly the Curriculum Committee (includes pupil welfare/online safety) and Resources Committee (includes staffing/finances/buildings).
The purpose of the Governing Board is to help the school provide the best possible education for all its pupils, ensuring that the school is held accountable to those it serves. Our Governors also get involved in a wide range of activities in school in their role of both support and challenge to the school community.
This table shows membership at the beginning of the school year.
The full Governing Body meets once per term and each governor is a member of at least one of the main committees: –
These committees meet between once and twice per term, dependent upon the business to be discussed or resolved. Attendance for Governing Meetings can be viewed in the attachments below.
Other committees or sub-committees are formed to deal with specific issues that arise from time to time, for example the appointment of new staff.
A structure of the various different committees and also the nominated governor roles are available to view here:
